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.

MAD always did have fun with cigarette ads.
