For G-Men only (with a Mickey Mouse toy)


I found this ad in my mailbox this morning, graciously provided by the inimitable Stan Jones.  It’s more of the same, but I’m always amazed at the verbioseness of interbellum advertising – if you want to read the whole thing, you need to spare quite a few minutes !  By contrast, in these days of internet advertising, you can count on an attention span of, let’s say, 5 to 10 seconds, depending on the amount of animation you provide…

More on real-life lawman “Little Mel” Purvis can be found here.  It doesn’t mention his fondness of Disney toys, however.
