    Bob Norris: The Original Marlboro Mam

    The original Marlboro Man died this week at his Colorado Springs ranch at the ripe old age of 90 ?? likely because he never actually smoked cigarettes.

    Bob Norris was an actor, rancher and dad who played the role of a smoking cowboy on billboards, TV and the pages of magazines for 12 years.

    I'm old enough to remember when people could
    smoke next to me at work.

    It was just the fashionable thing to do at one time.
    Everybody was doing it:

    Fred & Wilma preferred Winston, but the smart money and the wise consumers were for Camels, because 9 out of 10 doctors agreed - Camel was the healthiest cigarette.

    I remember watching a clip from the Golden Globe awards from the 60's it seemed everyone in the room was smoking (and drinking). The camera cut to Janet Leigh applauding with a cigarette danging from her lips !

    Yes I so agree also, one of the reasons people watch the
    Golden Globe awards because of the drinking and crazy things
    the movie/tv stars might say.
