1959 – The Rockettes and Razors

This ad is a kick

This ad from the December 1959 edition of Ladies Home Journal is a kick. It features the famous Radio City Music Hall Rockettes in Santa suits ready to perform. The caption reads:

Which one hasn’t met the princess?

The princess in this case is the Remington Princess electric razor.

The Rockettes are classily tied to New York, the Mid-century, and Christmas. The famous girls and their matching legs began in the 1920s, but flourished in the decades that followed. They still preform for Christmas and throughout the year at the iconic Radio City Music hall. Here’s a link to their excellent website.
