The alternative Wednesday toy

Posted by Helen Wednesday, February 14, 2007

This is the advertisement for "Flying down to Rio", not a particularly memorable film except for two things: Dolores del Rio's stunning looks (coupled with a total inability to act) and the dancing of Astaire and Rogers, together for the first time. The latter makes it a classic.

Oh yes, and those ladies on the aeroplane wings.
