Groucho Marx for Personna blades (1946)

Starring in “A Night in Casablanca,” a David L Loew Production, released thru United Artists

1: Next to a good 5 cent cigar, what this country needs is a great 10 cent razor blade…

2: Luckily, it’s got one — Personna! Personna’s so sharp it could take the beard off my jokes.

3: No longer am I a Groucho when shaving, because Personna gives me the smoothest closest shaves I ever had!

4: Why it makes sense to pay 10 cents for this blade:

Sure, Personna costs more. But Personna is a precision instrument — worth many times 10 cents in shaving ease and comfort.

Personna is made of premium steel… hollow-ground for extra keenness… rust-resistant for longer use. Spend a little more to get Personna… and get a lot more shaving comfort!
