X-Rays and Lingerie, Vintage Commercial
WOW. Just stumbled upon this amazing German commercial on the Art of Bleeding blog. I could not find much information about it, and what I have found is contradictory--1930s or 1950s? Television or film?--but either way. Simply amazing.
This one goes out to Mark Dery, who's Observatory lecture "The Anatomical Unconscious: X-Ray Specs, Visible Women, and the Eros of the Unseen" brought down the house last June. Maybe he showed this clip? I will never know, as it was far too crowded for me to see the lecture myself!
