Circa 1940's Large Oversize "Call For Phillip Morris" Advertisement - Framed


Here we offer a fantastic Philip Morris cigarette advertising sign from the 1940’s. This is the extremely rare billboard type version. This large piece from World War II era depicts Johnny Roventini (the Philip Morris bell boy) golfing with several women golfers in a beautiful tropical scene. Note the war bonds advertising in the lower left. Johnny Roventini, less than four feet tall as an adult, was working as a bellboy at the New Yorker hotel when he was discovered in 1933 by a Philip Morris advertising executive. He soon became the famous product spokesman for the brand on radio, television and print media. This heavy cardboard sign is mounted in a old style billboard frame. There is some minor paper loss on bottom right that has been painted in, but does not detract from this wonderful 1940’s advertising. Measures…. don't pass up this opportunity to own a rare crossover golf advertising piece of extraordinary historical significance! 42 3/4" x 32 3/4"
