    Harvey Kurtzman and Tony Randall vs. Hugh Hefner and a Desert of Silicone“‘So I’ve been out in the Nevada desert with Tony Randall and a PLAYBOY production crew, doing a fumetti,’ Kurtzman explains, lounging on the verandah behind his house, wearing tapered slacks, Italian shoes, and a wide-sleeved high-collared shirt open to the navel. He’s a good-looking man, but he drinks a suspicious amount of Pepsi-Cola, which is bad for your teeth. ‘And we did the whole thing, no problems, until the very last part, when Hefner flew in a planeful of girls for the sexy parts. And Randall came on the set that morning, and he looked around…You know, some of these girls were, they had *silicone* in their breasts, it makes their breasts *hard*, you know, it *changes* them… And Randall looked around…oh-oh, he said, we’ve got problems. Turns out he’s got a commercial contract with Libby baby foods, and there’s a provision that his image has to be kept clean. And now the fumetti’s at J. Walter Thompson and they’re deciding if it can be used…” —”If Harvey Kurtzman Had Written ‘Snow White,’ The Dwarves Would’ve Gotten Her” by Dean Lattimer, from US: THE PAPERBACK MAGAZINE #3, 1970.
