Camel cigarette ads, 1951

More appalling cigarette ads, from two different 1951 movie magazines.

I'm familiar with these actresses mostly from two specific roles: Anne Jeffreys was in Topper (the early TV show) and the great Vivian Blaine played Adelaide in Guys and Dolls, on Broadway and in the movies (a role that required a lot of singing).

Yes, doctor recommended, and not a single case of throat irritation! "I'd walk a mile for a camel" came later I guess. And Joe Camel was the 1980s. Mad Men indeed.
