Past Glam: 1953 Marilyn Monroe Lustre-Creme Shampoo Ad


I love these 1950s Shampoo Ads: "It's a new creamy lotion, a fragrant, satiny, easier-to-use lotion, that brings Lustre-Creme glamour to your hair with every heavenly shampoo!" It's outrageously high-faluting ad copy of course, written by some guy in a Mr. Smith Goes to Washington-era tweed suit with elbow patches and horn-rimmed glasses, but I'm weak! If they sold it today, I'd be halfway out the door to the drugstore :P
