BILL CRIDER'S POP CULTURE MAGAZINE
Here i am 52 years old and I still don't get the pronounciation of P-ALL - M-ALL pronounced "Pell mell".WTF?
I never could figure it out, either. That ad kinda makes me want a smoke, though.
My grandma smoked Pall Mall and died of cancer. Lee Marvin sure made smoking look cool though... of course Marvin could probably make slipping on ice look cool.Thanks for the post.
I always said Paul Maul. But mild? When I smoked I'd rather have had a roll of skunk cabbage than a Pall Mall.
This put me in the mind of the MAD comics house ads warning readers to smoke only EC's pride and joy...posted probably elsewhere, but this is how I found it again:http://tinyurl.com/cxboz9(You can enlarge the small image, but sadly most of the text remains vague.)
MAD always did have fun with cigarette ads.
