The Barefoot Contessa - Nov 12, 1954

Continuing our look at ads from the 50s and 60s.

This is The Barefoot Contessa starring Humphrey Bogart and Ava Gardner. My wife is a huge fan of Food Network star, Ina Garten, whose restaurant and TV show are named after this movie.

Independently wealthy Kirk Edwards hires washed up director Harry Dawes to write/direct a new film. In a Madrid nightclub they find the beautiful but troubled Maria Vargas as their leading lady. And Maria begins to romance her way through several rich men.

Other vintage ads:
- White Witch Doctor (1953)

Here's the classic trailer for Barefoot Contessa.
