A Marlboro 50s ad when PM changed the ad theme

This is one of the 50's Marlboro ads.  One of the original Marlboro ads with a man.  When PM got rid of the lady/"Mild as May" theme and started marketing Marlboro as a men's brand instead.

This "Marlboro Man" has a Joe Torre-like face.  lol

Obviously, when PM changed the theme, they changed the Marlboro pack itself to the one we all used to seeing in the modern era.

When you look at ads like these from the 40s/50s, you would think cigs would be just about as normal for your health as seeing a kid with a candy bar.
