The opening sequence (with lots of Lake Shore Drive) and first few minutes of the first episode of Playboy’s Penthouse, 1959, Chicago. 

Shot in Chicago, the in-studio set was meant to look like Hef’s apartment. This is just the first 10 minutes, but there’s a lot of additional footage on Youtube worth watching.

Cy Coleman’s theme song for the show, which is used to this day for the Playboy brand, reminds me of being a kid in my bedroom and hearing it come down the hallway from my dad’s “office”.
