Okay, she may not be a household name, but some of us old people here might remember her from the equally old days of television, especially television commercials.  Anyway, she died the other day at the age of 81.

I heard about it yesterday.
 
I knew who she was when I was a kid & so did all my friends.
 
We all had the adolescent boner for her.
 
Sad thing, but we all go sometime.
 
 
Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

"Extra length, extra taste, extra pleasure." LOL
 
Talk about using sex to sell a product.....
 
I remember the 2nd & 3rd commercials from back then.
 
Pretty funny seeing Joe Frazier talking about having just spent 200 grand on a house for his mom.
 
Today that would get him a 3 bedroom 1½ bath ranch-style with a carport in an average middle income neighborhood.
 
But not in California.

Thor, now that you brought up smoking ads.....
 
Good to see that abusing songs for commercials is nothing new.
 
 
Oh yeah, and at the end of this dumb ad they try to say how the Winchester is sooo special because it's not a cigar and it's not a cigarette, they are cigars the size of a cigarette, well duh, cigarette means small cigar.

That probably bought her a mansion in the 1970's.  I think my dad bought our split entry for about $23,000 in 1967.  I think by that time though houses were a wopping $60,000.  Shocked

ANd back then, it was impossible to get a mortgage. The interest in the 60s  was like 18 - 22% Unhappy

My parents bought the 4 bedroom 2 bath house I grew up in & my mom still lives in for $14,000.
 
I don't think they paid interest rates that high though.
 
My dad was a military veteran so I think they got a loan through the VA.
 
I know their payments were like $120 - $150 a month. ShockedShockedShocked
 
But that was a bit of money back then too.

My folks paid $63/month mortgage on the house they bought in NJ in 1955 for $15,000, and lived in until they died.

They always ran those ads during NFL football games in the 60s and 70s.  Cigars could still be advertised on television until about 1980.  RIP Edie.
