I came across this copy of LIFE magazine from 1963. It’s a hoot to have a look at the products promoted and the statements made about them. Cigarette ads, car ads, and even an ad for Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn’s new movie, Charade (a wonderful film BTW). Also read some of the articles and editorials about Civil Rights and the Moon Race. Awesome stuff. Brings back a lot of memories. I was 10 at the time, so I remember most of this stuff. And it just struck me, this issue is for November 8, 1963. In just two weeks, JFK would be assassinated and America’s world would change forever.
