Nice post, I love old ads like these. By the way Becca, I wanted to thank you for the link and also to tell you about one of my other blogs. It's at http://monkeycee.blogspot.com, it's my pop culture blog and the Pprofiles in Sitcom Greatness" posts I write are inspired by your "Overlooked Movie Index."

The only picture that rankles me is the Victoria/Albert one because I know better... Victoria... wasn't a blonde looker. Ever.

If MC hadn't pointed that out, I was going to. Of course, you could say the same about Isabelle. And Famous Love Stories of HISTORY, and there's a Bible story and Shakespeare?

Dr. Monkey-
Coolest name ever by the way...

...and I checked out the pop culture blog. It's alot of fun so I had to link it. I think you and I have simular taste in TV, I can't wait to see what you do next! Glad to have inspired!

MC-
Yeah I know it really cracks me up how much she looks like Grace Kelly.

Samurai-
Oh No you did'ent! The bible is so based on history!

Man I can't keep going with that. You know the thing that creeps me out most about the bible? Are we are all descendents of the incestuous relations of Noah's family? Just wondering. And whay wasn't that included as a great historical love story?

Q: Why are Juliet, Queen Isabella, and Delilah hocking cigarretes? Something doesn't sound right there...

Becca said...

Actually it's soap but point taken!

J.D. Judge said...

[laughs ass off] I just figured, ya know, and the box looks so much like a cigarette box, right? So... yeah. I'm kooky! I'm crazy! I live in a hole!

"LET'S PLAY WHAC-A-MOLE!!"

Becca said...

Yes! Whac-A-Mole! You can't get much cooler than that!

J.D. Judge said...

Believe me -- I can't. You're lucky you consider me cool already. [sighs] I'm pathetic.
