The second feature, PLAYMATES, is a French film originally titled LE BAL DES VOYOUS (1968), starring Donna Michelle (MICKEY ONE, BEACH BLANKET BINGO) and Linda Veras (FACE TO FACE, SABATA). Presented in the U.S. by Jack H. Harris, it was first released with a self-applied X rating in 1969, through V.I.P. Distributors. Harris submitted it to the MPAA for a rating in 1973 (it received an R), and kept it in circulation for the rest of the decade.
