Luxe Lager








Despite the persuasive copy, we can't quite picture Cole Porter or Miss Irene Dunne knocking back a few brewskies; yet, for some odd reason, it seems quite right and plausible to imagine Bea Lillie doing so...

  1. Dont forget that Ms Lillie went on to say that "two heads were better than one". Do you think she was talking about the beer or something else?

  2. Did anyone YOUNG ever drink Rheingold?! Neat to see Irene and William a little older than most pictures show, though.

  3. Nor can we picture Cole Porter pouring out his OWN beer or that of guests. Servants' work, you know...

  4. When you think about it, though, that's quite a lineup of celebrity endorsements. At the time, all these people were BIG!

    Old, but BIG!

  5. those were the days...look how Irene Dunne can walk upright and sassy out of her car's back door.... instead of the crab-struggling-out-of-shell look we have getting out of the back of our 2-doors!

  6. I guess every other inch of Miss Lillie was a beer drinker.
