    the '62 Plymouth in the Goodyear Snow Tire ad was a Fury or a Sport Fury (three lights instead of two), also there was a '62 Dart and either a '61 Dodge or a '62 Dodge 880 Custom

    I have always noticed that they put the shortened name of chemicals or compounds in those old commercials. IMP? M3? Your average person does not know what that stuff is.

    Commercials should be more straightforward and direct like they were back then. Now most commercials try too hard at trying to be hip and funny but usually fail horribly.

    Who else thought of "The Golden Girls" with the Rheingold commercial?
    The reason why those towels looked like crap...they were in 3 washers that spins the water out, instead of a neutral drain washer, like the Westinghouse.

    Oh, and Pat Boone & Dinah Shore sounded fabulous singing together. Beautiful to look at & beautiful voices. I miss the old time music, too. It was a much more innocent era in time...or at least seemed that way.

    I love the poetry in the Champs of the Akcan Run... it's really wonderful. Too bad they don't make commercials like these happy, positive, smile provoking commercials. They're feel good. I line that. This world needs all the positive & feel good media it can get.

  • Lyle Waller

    It's noteworthy that, except for the character, "Joe", and Dinah Shore, all the people seen in these ads are "White". Today, however, there are no "Whites" in the ads, except as objects of ridicule and derision. The rest of the "people" are Negros or are "arab" or mixed in some way. The subliminal message is that "Whites" are not welcome members of the Jew, er, New World Order. For some of us, the message is not subliminal, but blatant.
    Have YOU noticed this?

    Love the Chevy station wagon commercial where the Mom is wearing a suit and white gloves while out doing her grocery shopping! But the thing that is kinda cool, especially for the 1950s, is that she is the one taking it out for the test drive.

    My parents were born in the mid '40s so I feel like I'm getting an excellent taste of what commercials were like during their most formative years. Some of these commercials are embarrassing as fuck, but there are some really great ones that would sell me on the product even today. I wish I could show my mom and dad these commercials to send them on a trip down memory lane, but at least I'm getting a good taste of a time long before mine, when my parents were growing up.

      berighteous I would say additives do. Let me put it this way in 1910s and 20s almost everyone smoked and didn’t use filters yet cancer was so rare a Doctor was considered lucky to see a case in their life. Fast forward a few decades and cancer explodes, was tobacco different? No but the product had chemicals added, same for food and water. Now with smoking very low cancer is through the roof. So I’d say additives is the issue.

    Wow. That's Rob. I remember several of these but the Hams beer was my favorite at the time. I remember that beer in a bar in San Joquine (sp), California. It was just out of the club grounds and kids were welcomed! We could sit in the booths while our parents drank on stools at the bar. And the water moved now that I think of it. You could sit and stare at it because I think they used lights on the advertisement and the water was quite pretty. I haven't thought of that for . . . fifty years at least. How did I get this old? lol And the stink of the bar. Yuk. In those days people didn't know how bad it was for you so most adults smoked. And the bar was just smokey. They served food too, which was good for us. And women didn't know they shouldn't drink or smoke in those days when they were pregnant. I've often wondered if that effected us. They even would give a carton of cigarettes as a present to a 18 years old when they turned into an adult. :( My Mother died from it. And Lucky's! My Uncle smoked those. He had nicotine fingers all the time. There weren't many cigarette types in those days. Maybe ten kinds. I remember the Raid one and the cereal one. I guess they don't make it any more. I forgot how dry these commercials were. I have to laugh about the, "flavor buds" bit. "The amazing coffee discovery." Oh, I remember those bands. Kids thought they were cool.

I'm half in the bag myself, but as I write this crap to you, I wish I had a few Hamm's right now! Didja know they don't stock that beer in California anymore? Gahtdamn I miss the old days! Love, peace and taco grease! BTW...Rob, ya' done good! Hasta, Gabes "the Meskin"!
