    The cover model is Marta Toren, a Swedish actress who was stricken with a brain hemorrhage while appearing on stage in Stockholm and died two days later at the age of 31.

    I’m surprised that an ad this risqué ran in LIFE magazine.

    I’ll bet it disappeared under a LOT of adolescent boys’ mattresses!

    r peltier: You can. At least it’s still manufactured. Love the limited color palette of the ad.
