Dorothy Lamour sings in colorful tones whilst Hotel Berlin appears to be on something of a cloak and dagger lockdown. Tense nerves make a body quarrelsome while khaki pants-wearing gentlemen folk sip whisky after gardening. A Helena Rubenstein cosmetic color wheel acts as a guide to ladies looking for that elusive combination of enviable luxury and seemingly effortless glamour. Coal is busy making steel while "bluejackets" revel in a moist shave. Such was life in the advertising of the (now seemingly innocent) 1940s... colorful and comical in some places, stark and dramatic in others.
