how to find a cigarette billboard from the seventies?
I was just emailing with my sil and trying to describe this billboard or maybe a magazine ad to her. the woman on it was beautiful of course, with a long tawny lion's mane of wind blown hair and Slavic features.
I can see it so clearly in my mind's eye, but having searched a few web sites I just can't find it. does it ring a bell with anyone?
I recall Tiparillo, mini cigar ads with a blonde slightly different but American, model. And wore a full length gown, deep décolletage. She was an actress whom for some reason I didn't like.
But what an odd question LOL
ah, got it. Susan Anton, google images to see her pictures.
I was just a little kid and my sil a good twenty years older. My brother who married her old me that she was a model. he was kidding but so proud that she was drop dead gorgeous and I being his gullible little sister believed him.
I sort of remember the billboard and she did bear a terrific resemblance at that time.
iirc it was maybe a Marlboro type ad. All windblown hair and a very sexy full on stare at the camera.
Sil and I were just chatting as their fortieth anniversary is coming up, and I mentioned what he had told me all those years ago. She was so surprised and flattered that I thought if I could find the picture she'd really get a big kick out of it.
This one fits your description, but I did a google image search and there are dozens of them out there. It's the second one on the page but there are a couple others that might be what you're looking for as well.
the second one is very close, thanks so much!
I searched last night for a good long time, but i'm not that good with the search skills, and I'm trying to remember a poster from 1970, when I was ten!
I do have the feeling that I would recognize it when I saw it, i'll keep looking.
my sil is over 70 now, she would be so happy to see an ad I thought was her for many many years.
