I never smoked, really only because I did not see the fascination of spending an enormous amount of money to see something go up in smoke.
However most of my family were or still are smokers and I do feel sorry for smokers. I do think they get a bad press. Yes, smoking is bad for you but what chance did the smokers have with so many people making it look cool.
If I was a smoker I don’t think I could have resisted the temptation. Here are just some historical pictures of people,mostly famous, who made smoking look cool.
Tippi Hedren, star of Alfred Hitchcock’s ‘The Birds’, with a tame Raven shown helping her indulge a bad habit.
Young Drew Barrymore
Models learning proper cigarette smoking technique in practice for TV ad. 1953
Jack Nicholson & Sean Penn
Clark Gable and Ava Gardner, Mogambo, 1953
I mean Steve McQueen…
