Thrilling Hair Tonic Ad

hair tonic

I‘ve never really given much thought to hair tonic. But after seeing this great little photo drama from 1967, I think that I’ll go out and see if I can find some.

The ad shows you in 10 panes, that clearly, your dull wit and cowardly nature can be remedied by combing a little petroleum distilate into your hair.

    As I alway say… “Nothin’ better than a bit of petroleum distillate…” ;)

    This may be the first ever reference to a loose woman as a “trick”. Interesting.

    The next 10 panes show the casino goons working him over in a back room, then dumping his unconscious body in a dumpster out back.

    If it’s good enough to sharpen a blade, clean a paintbrush, and removing makeup, mineral oil must be the ticket to a grand head of hair.
