This Ad for the “The Fly” (1958) is both Suggestive and Hilarious

The release of the original “The Fly” was before my time, so I am not sure how the ad campaign for the movie was conducted. But if it was anything like this vintage ad that was posted on Reddit the other day, it must have been delightful.

If I saw this in a paper in 1958, it would have sent me giggling all the way to the box office.
