1952 Ad - Lustre-Creme Shampoo - feat. ELIZABETH TAYLOR

This is a genuine original magazine advertisement from a 1952 issue of the Ladies' Home Journal.

This full-colour ad features an uncredited Philippe Halsman portrait photograph of the late, great Hollywood legend, Elizabeth Taylor. The star of on- and off-screen dramas is posed with her head at a slight tilt and with a somewhat demure glance from those famous eyes. Full red lips and an off-the-shoulder dress highlighting a pearl choker add to her enticing beauty. The head-shot photo of the gorgeous Liz illustrates the taglines, "The Most Beautiful Hair in the World is kept at it's loveliest ... with Lustre-Creme Shampoo" and "Famous Hollywood Stars use Lustre-Creme Shampoo for Glamorous Hair".

This Fifties-era ad also heralds Miss Taylor's co-starring role in the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer movie, "Ivanhoe". Pictured as well, are a jar and tube of the hair care product (complete with original retail prices).

This LARGE vintage advert measures 10 3/8" x 13 3/4" (approx.). The image has been accommodated completely by a large-format scanner. This 1950s print ad is in excellent condition and is eminently suitable for framing. This piece of movie memorabilia / entertainment ephemera would make a great gift for a fan of Hollywood "royalty" or history.
