I Love Philip

Wednesday Advertising Day.

Here are some more cigarette ads, starting with a couple of Camels ads I hope I haven't shown before.

March 29 1951:

Whoever did these Philip Morris ads I don't know, but he obviously was a major talent. Was it Wexler? Or are we seeing an early sample of Leonard Starr's work? I have shown some of these before, including another Lucy ad in color. There probably was a series of those, when the tv show was just starting even.
