Grainy color photo from 1960s - any way to smooth?

Trying to improve this for a friend. The original had one unfaded rectangle in the lower left; the rest was pretty bad. I've gotten this far, but the texture is so grainy... ideas for improvement?

Thanks! http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j2...ama/grainy.jpg

What tools are you using to try and improve this e.g. Photoshop etc?

What have your tried so far?

If you use Photoshop and do not have any additional plugin filters what result do you get with PS inbuilt filters either Reduce Noise filter or despeckle?
