Two classic ads on this: The Clairol "Is it true blondes have more fun?" ad and the Lark cigarette ad.

Also a great Screen Gems ID at the end.

From 1961 to her death in 1970, Inger Stevens was secretly married to Ike Jones, a black American actor. She also was romantically involved with Bing Crosby, Anthony Quinn, Dean Martin, Harry Belafonte, Mario Lanza, among numerous others, and Burt Reynolds, shortly before her suicide.

A houseguest found Stevens lying face down on her kitchen floor on the morning of April 30, 1970, having overdosed on Tedral (a combination drug of theophylline, ephedrine and phenobarbital, commonly prescribed in the treatment of breathing trouble associated with asthma, emphysema, bronchitis and other such illnesses), washed down with alcohol.
