I’m your best friend – I am your Lucky Strike (Jul, 1935)

I’m your best friend – I am your Lucky Strike

I am a better friend than others, for I am made only of mild, fragrant, expensive center leaves. Not a single sharp top leaf nor a single coarse bottom leaf mars my good taste or my uniform mildness. I do not irritate your throat. I am, indeed, a soothing companion, the best of friends.

They Taste Better

    “I do not irritate your throat” – well, other than the cancer cough.

    The cigarette she’s supposedly holding appears to be drawn into the picture.

    Some serious psychological weirdness going on there. You would think they would steer away from the theme of a junkie’s drug being his “best friend.”

    Duh, 1935. Back when smoking was good for you.

    Okay, you’re all morally and intellectually superior to people from 75 years ago, happy?

    Myles–
    Illnesses, incuding Cancer were, probably, never a huge deterent to smoking, especially when there are benefits like weight loss, or being cool, like Humphrey Bogart. lol

    I was going to say that looks like Natalie Wood but she was born in 1938

    Is it just me, or does she look a little wall-eyed?
