Vintage 1970s hair care magazine advertisement, Hot Pick Electric Comb, with celebrity endorsement from NFL Cowboys’ All-Pro Harvey Martin, 1977
“Try the Hot Pick Electric Comb for 30 days. We guarantee it works.”
Martin passed away at age 51 in 2001 — he died of pancreatic cancer. Bio brief about Martin, from Wikipedia:
Harvey Banks Martin was an American football defensive end in the National Football League for the Dallas Cowboys from 1973 until 1983. He starred at South Oak Cliff High School and East Texas State University, before becoming an All-Pro with the Dallas Cowboys.
His 1977 season was one of the greatest ever by an NFL player. In a 14-game season he totaled 85 tackles and a league-leading 23 sacks (more than Michael Strahan’s 22.5 record in 16 games), he was named the NFL Defensive Player of the Year, a consensus All-Pro selection, was a key player in the Cowboys winning Super Bowl XII, and a co-MVP of the game with Randy White.
Martin remained the team sack leader or co-leader every year, but his totals started to dwindled as his personal problems (financial problems and addictions) grew bigger. He followed up his 23-sack 1977 season with a 16-sack performance in 1978, 10 in 1979, 12 in 1980, 10 in 1981, 8 in 1982 and 2 in 1983. To this day he is considered the greatest defensive end in Dallas Cowboys history.
As part of the famed Doomsday Defense, “The Beautiful” aka “Too Mean” went to the Pro Bowl four times. Former Cowboys GM Tex Schramm stated: “He’ll be remembered as one of the great Cowboys of the golden years … He was a great player, one of the first great pass rushers”.

Portuguese ads for a book on hipnotism by the New York Institute of Science, bycicles and phonographers J. Castello Branco, Nestlé flour, and True Grains of Health of Dr. Franck for digestion.
“Amazing mental force
The art of dominating
Wnderful results presented by the comitee in charge of the study of hipnotism on behakf of the public
Hipnotism is not just another myth, an imaginary creation of the spirit, but a reality, a force capable of causing great benefits. In order to inquire into the value and the consequences of such a powerful force, a comitee was formed by a doctor, a well-known juryconsult, a prominent member of the clergy and a railroad director, so as to study Hipnotism.
The comitee did a series of investigations over the influence of Hipnotism over daily events. The first concern of the membres of the comitee was to study thoughly the science of Hipnotism, so as to be able to judge for themselves what good or evil this powerful force could do. They wrote to the New York Institute of Sciences dept. 1518 of Rochester, N. Y., the most important school of Hipnotism and occult sciences in the world: and they received complete and detailed instructions on how to emply Hipnotism, in influencing business, as a remedy for sickness, etc., etc. In a matter of days, the members of the comitee knew deeply the science of Hipnotism, becoming masters in that art.
It was clearly demonstrated that Hipnotism can be used in such a way that the person hipnotized doesn’t know that they were.”
