Smoke 'em if you've got 'em

What do Carole Lombard and Jimmy Durante (shown alongside Jack Oakie with a mustache) have in common? Both appeared in Old Gold cigarette ads in the 1930s, and are among a group of such ads up for auction at eBay.

The Lombard ad offered is horizontal rather than vertical, but has the same copy. Other stars featured include Bing Crosby, Adrienne Ames, Wallace Beery, Bert Wheeler (of Wheeler & Woolsey fame) and Virginia Bruce. Bidding opens at $9.99, and the auction closes at 10:25 p.m. (Eastern) Monday.
