But one of my favourites is this film for Winston Cigarette’s which embodies not just the straightforward gender differentiation of the day, but people’s relationship with their cigarette’s. Awesome.

Or for a neat summary of the best 5 ads from what has been called “the golden age of Cigarette advertising” check out this video. Great stuff.
