1940s Drene Shampoo Advertisement - Have We Come Very Far?

I was browsing through a 1940's Silver Screen magazine and I had to show you this: an advertisement for Drene Shampoo with Hair Conditioner. Have we really come very far in 60+ years? Do we not still hear: "No other shampoo leaves your hair so lustrous, yet so easy to manage!" and, "Make a Date with Glamour!" and similar phrases used in the advertisements for hair products we use today? And note the "Guaranteed by Good Housekeeping" seal on the bottom.

The picture may take a bit to load, but it's worth it to get a blast from the past that isn't perhaps so very distant after all.
