No one can deny that Jim Brown has an opinion on everything. And one filmmaker has drawn on many of those opinions for a new documentary about the life and times of Hugh Hefner. Brown apparently is a prominently featured interviewee, lauding Hef for his civil rights work in Chicago, among other things. Hef, however, is not often remembered by all civil rights activits, most notably the women who encouraged him to start walking around with a cotton tail on his ass and see how he liked it, as a valiant player in civil rights efforts. Brown, however, was a good friend of Playboy's founder, even appearing on the TV show "Playboy After Dark" in 1969.
