Gracie Allen for Lipton Tea



FLASH! This Lipton Tea advertisement masquerades as a Hollywood gossip page! R. Barclay Neff seems to be either a made-up columnist or, perhaps, he just wasn't very good at dishing the dirt. It's hard to imagine that stories about Gracie's secret rendezvous with tea experts and her belief that Lipton is 'completely different from insipid, flat-tasting teas' really caught the public's imagination. Neff was clearly the Hedda Hopper of the beverage set.

How scandalous!

Britney's shaved head/rehab/meltdown is nothing compared to this juicy story!

I don't think a lot of people read Life magazine.. because if this information would have gotten out, Gracie would have been done for sure!

Clearly, what we consider scandalous today is nothing compared to what it once was! Though, I hear that Richard Gere also meets with tea experts.
