What were the classic commercials and print ads in the 1940's? What lines or slogans became household names? I've been looking at the images of some print ads during that period. The graphics may look pale compared to today's computer-generated ads, but I think they were pretty straightforward and no-frills.

How about "I'd Walk A Mile For A Camel" which was a brand of cigarette in the US. I think it's funny to see some of the advertisements for things we now consider unhealthy. I remember one I saw the other day about cooking with "lard" as being healthy because it was natural. I can't think of anyone now who would say that.

Memories, you are so right about what was advertised back then and being unhealthy now. As you mentioned Camel cigarettes, there was a commercial in the 1940's that said More Doctors smoke Camel than any other cigarette. Guess back in the day, it was like giving the cigarette a seal of approval. There was a cute cartoon I saw about Rinso laundry soap. There are some classic ads just waiting to be explored.
