Fun group of spots!
The last one is quite a curio indeed, with an all-star cast: Howard Duff, Ida Lupino, Bob Cummings, Ann B. Davis, and (I think) Joi Lansing. Duff and Lupino literally walk into the universe of the old Bob Cummings Show to have Cummings' character, photographer Bob Collins, take their portraits; it gets kind of surreal from then on. Ultimately we learn that the ad is Cummings, whose show was sponsored by Winston, congratulating Duff and Lupino for their new show, Mr. Adams And Eve, and welcoming them into the fold of Winston-sponsored shows.

All in all, a lot of fun.
Five minutes of ads across nine commercials. Begins with a delightful jingle to the tune of “Skip to the Lou, My Darling”. Moves on to “Finer, Filter, Finer Flavor, King Size” with a husband and wife team, the cutesy wife saying “It draws so easily”. Then a couple of ten-second shorts, leading to another animated sequence “Winston tastes good, like a cigarette should”.
Following those is a forgettable ad with a husband and wife in a car, another couple of shorts, and then the set finishes with Howard Duff of “Mr Adams and Eve” fame, wolf-whistling a couple of cigarette girls in short skirts.
In the two years prior to going off the year..1969-1971, Winston developed a series of commercials with a 'Me and my Winston' theme. Does anyone know where one might obtain clips of these commercials. Same for Salem.....period 69-71?
Oh did I have fun watching these Cigarette ads! All of these I imagine are incredibly rare. It shows the introduction of the Winston brand, (Âby the makers of Camels Â So you know theyÂre good!Â) and has great animation on some of them.. But the main draw here are the live actors, saying stuff you canÂt say anymore on TV.. (ÂIt DRAWS so easily!Â). I love the flirtatious truck driver too! You have short and long ads on here. This was a LOT of fun
