Actor William Talman, best known as Hamilton Burger on the Perry Mason television program, died of lung cancer in 1968 at age 53. He made a couple of anti-smoking ads for the America Cancer Society after his terminal diagnosis shortly before his death. See below. Smoking rates in the US was around 40% among adults in 1968. Today it is about 15%

Some of the unvaccinated would be doing the world a public service if they made similar commercials for Covid vaccination.

Florida doctor says many hospitalized COVID-19 patients regret not getting vaccine
Dr. Victor Herrera with Adventhealth said a vast majority of their COVID-19 patients who were not vaccinated, several ill people have expressed regret when it was too late.

“Right before he was about to be [intubated], ‘I wish I had received a vaccine,’” Herrera said the patient told him. “Now they are very sick in the hospital, they are about to be [intubated], they and their families have thoughts related to if they made the right decision [about the vaccine.]”

    Sure, but I have only a slight recollection of his anti-smoking ad.

    Interestingly, I never saw it until you reminded us of William Talman.

    The day after the Brynner ad appeared, my boss came into the office and raved about it and described it virtually frame by frame.

    Powerful.

    Now, if Biden would succumb from dementia and Joe would keep talking about his 18 wheeler driving days, sales of memory drugs would likely spike.
