Another gorgeous image! I can't help but notice that in 1930s ads, the women look so ravishing and the men look so...feminine. This is evident in movies of the period, too. This era never ceases to fascinate me.

I'm Portuguese, I'm continental too. :) I recomend this terrific article about the suave man in the movies:
