Miss May… Out-of-this-world…

Playboy, May 1954, Vol.1, No. 6, p. 15

The guy with three eyes is known as Weegee, and he has built a considerable reputation as a photographer of the streets of New York – capturing, on film, the humor, foibles, and tragedy of a big city’s people. The best of these pictures were collected a few years back in a remarkable volume titled Naked City.
Recently Weegee packed up his photographic paraphernalia and took himself a trip to Hollywood. What he brought back was a quite a shock to those familiar with his more realistic camera style. The best of these have been collected in a book titled Naked Hollywood, with captions by Mel Harris, published by Pellegrini and Cudahy. As the samples on this page illustrate, Weegee found Hollywood a very naked place indeed, and just as out-of-this-world as we’d always heard it was.”

(Not Weegee, but not bad…)
