The interesting question Identify this 1960's launch site and mission? contains some screenshots of launch pad stock footage. Most are of LC39, but as @Puffin points out in a comment, one does not appear to be.

What launch pad and vehicle is depicted here? (I do not seek the exact mission vehicle depicted, just the type, e.g. Atlas, Delta, etc.)

Tentatively id'd as LC37 (Saturn 1 vehicles) in the foreground and LC34 (also Saturn 1) in the background.

A modern Google Earth image shows the pattern of crossing roads between the pads as visible in the screenshot.

There also appears to be a Mobile Support Structure parked at the foreground pad. Seen here in an image from the Pad 37 Fact Sheet

Pad 34 of course was the site of the Apollo 1 fire. (personal photo)
