Postcards commemorating naval warfare during the Civil War and movie star advertisements of the early 20th century are two topics discussed in this month's issue. In "Battle Of The Ironclads," author Roy Nuhn examines the famous conflict between the Merrimac and Monitor as well as postcards issued to honor the battle and the Memorial Day holiday. In "Starstruck," Donald-Brian Johnson writes about "Old Hollywood" stars and studio advertising of that era. A columnist and frequent contributor, Johnson is an authority on 20thcentury American culture, design, and collectibles of various eras. Of course, there is much more to be found inside as well.

A little over 150 years ago, the famous fight between the world’s first ironclads, Merrimac and Monitor, took place. It was an epic battle of the Civil War and forever altered naval warfare. One of the earliest military strategies by the Union at the start of the conflict in 1861 was a naval blockade of the South. Its purpose was two-fold, economic strangulation and preventing incoming armaments from Europe. Along with privateers running the blockade, the Confederates came up with the idea of building an ironclad warship. Such an armored vessel, completely sheathed in iron plates, would be invincible against the wooden ships of the day. Christened Merrimac, she was built from the ruins of the USS Virginia, which had been abandoned by fleeing Federal troops in the opening months of the war. In March of 1862, Merrimac steamed out to sea

The Ironclads (Continued from page 4)
Exposition in Seattle, Wash. Later, it moved to Luna Park on Coney Island and was enjoyed by large audiences for another decade. The public’s fascination with the Merrimac and Monitor never wavered. Hollywood took advantage of this obsession by making a romantic motion picture about it, Republic Pictures’ “Hearts in Bondage” in 1936. The film told the story of two close friends, and their sweethearts, who chose different sides in the war and ended up in the opposing ironclads. Souvenir postcards about the two ships and their great naval battle were issued by more than a dozen printers in the years between 1904 and
Part of L.R. Conwell’s gold-bordered 1909 Memorial Day series showing the Monitor in the background.
1914. In addition, some of the dozens of Memorial Day postcards produced during this era had illustrations of the ironclads. Publishers included L.R. Conwell and Raphael Tuck & Sons (Series N. 1078). At expositions, along with toy models of the Merrimac and Monitor, illustrated premium storybooks, and other souvenirs, exposition postcards about them were favorites with a generation of fairgoers. Forty-five years after the epic Civil War battle, the Jamestown (Virginia) Exposition of 1907 opened (mentioned previously). Located in the general area where the two ships had fought and heralding a general theme of national reconciliation, it focused renewed attention on the 1862 event. All of this, combined with the fact that recreations of the naval battle were being staged continuously at a sideshow in the amusement area, created a demand for pictorial postcards abut the ironclads. New York City’s A.C. Bosselman & Co.’s output was a major presence at the expo. As part of their two sets were several about the armored vessels. No. 5987, a double scene, offered “Monitor and (Continued on page 18)

Starstruck: Collecting Movie Star Ads By Donald-Brian Johnson
The year was 1929. Makeup maven Max Factor had just signed a first batch of Hollywood stars to endorsement contracts. With the blessing of their studios, the performers would appear in print ads promoting Max’s latest cosmetics. Not so coincidentally, those ads would also promote the studios’ latest movie releases. Naturally, the stars needed to be compensated. But what was fair? Millions? Thousands? Hundreds? Nope. The “Max Factor Girls,” as they came to be known, each received annual compensation in the heady amount of. . .one dollar. That’s right. One dollar. And the starry ladies who
contracted with Mr. Factor were happy to have it. Over the years, Max Factor’s movieland roster came to encompass a significant slice of Hollywood history. Now, free publicity is nice. . .but signing over your image for just a dollar? Why were the stars of Hollywood’s Golden Age so agreeable? Well, because there were so many of them. Old-time Hollywood studios churned out movies more rapidly than Hormel churns out cans of Spam. Every evening on the
silver screen, new faces were offered up for public consumption. Magazine ads like Max Factor’s made sure those new faces had a chance to register, while at the same time making sure that familiar faces weren’t forgotten. It was a dynamic return on a dollar’s investment. Soon, the stars shone brightly for an entire cosmetics counter’s worth of glamour goodies. Of course, the majority of Hollywood stars, even dressed in gunny sacks, faces scrubbed with laundry soap, would still leave onlookers
gobsmacked by their natural beauty. This was never mentioned. Instead, the message conveyed was simple: use Max Factor (or Woodbury, or Lux), and you could be just as lovely as Lana or as irresistible as Ingrid. Once advertisers saw how favorably consumers responded to movie star endorsements, the race was on. Full-page, fullcolor cigarette promos had stars, ranging from Rosalind Russell to Richard Widmark, touting just how “mild” and (Continued on page 18)

Starstruck: (Continued from page 14)
“soothing” a particular brand could be. Jolene Shoes joined forces with bandleader/caricaturist Xavier Cugat for ads featuring a revolving door of fetching starlets. Art Linkletter pitched vegetables for Green Giant, Abbott and Costello touted Tums, and Ozzie & Harriet shooed away germs with Listerine. Puppeteer Señor Wences drank in the joys of Seagram’s 7, while bandleader Lawrence Welk raised his baton in salute of the 1957 Dodge. Some stars promoted their program sponsors. Bob “Pepsodent” Hope eventually ballyhooed everything from RCA Color TVs to Jolly Time Popcorn. Alfred Hitchcock balefully boosted Bufferin. Hearty vocalist Kate Smith sang the praises of baking with Swan’s Down Cake Flour (“That girl,” whispered one coworker, “has a real sweet tusk”). By the mid-1950s, most stars “selling it” were doing so on TV, often on their own programs and for much more than a Max Factor dollar. Starthemed print ads eventually became the last bastion of oncefamiliar faces. Fortunately, stacks of adladen magazines can still be found at estate and garage
sales; prices run in the $5 to $20 range. If you’re interested only in a single star, a ready-togo ad is an option. Enterprising dealers buy up old magazines and dissect them, selling ads featuring specific performers at $5 to $10. Paging through a magazine of the past is like opening a time capsule of mid-twentieth century popular culture. Let’s riffle through a 1936 issue of Woman’s Home Companion. On our way to the “star ads,” we’re happily waylaid by a wealth of recipes, decorating tips, and short stories. Then, that first ad appears. It’s for Chase & Sanborn Coffee, sponsors of radio’s “Major Bowes’ Original Amateur Hour.” There’s the Major himself and all his newlydiscovered stars, including a vocal quartet, the “Hoboken Four.” Wait a minute. . .who’s that in the spotlight? Why, it’s the group’s lead crooner: skinny, smiling, and soon-to-be-famous Frank Sinatra! In the words of Woodbury Powder, that definitely qualifies as “a bit of stardust magic. . . a flawless, film-star finish.” Donald-Brian Johnson is the co-author of numerous Schiffer books on design and collectibles, including “Postwar Pop,” a collection of his columns.

The Ironclads (Continued from page 13)
Merrimac” and “Virginia Sinking the Cumberland.” Another double-scene, No. 5989, portrayed “Destruction of the Virginia, May 11, 1862” and “Destruction of the Merrimac.” Among Jamestown A&V Co.’s extensive line of postcards for the expo can be found an artist’s rendition of the historic clash. Raphael Tuck & Sons borrowed some of A&V’s illustrations, including “Battle Between the Monitor and Merrimac” for its set with silver backgrounds. Most interesting of all is the set by The Merrimac & Monitor Post Card Co. (Norfolk, Virginia), which was printed by American Colortype Co. from the paintings of C.S. Richards. Originally a set of at least six, surplus stock left over after the expo’s closing was later used to promote Coney Island’s battle recreation sideshow. Illustrated Post Card Co. and Fairchild Co. also published cards about the ships for sale at the Virginia Fair. The Merrimac and Monitor exhibit at the 1909 AlaskaYukon-Pacific Exposition, after its move from the Jamestown Expo, resulted in two cards by E.W. McConnell. In the decade leading up to
the U.S. entry into World War I, quite a few postcards about the historic vessels were sold as part of general, everyday stock. Among the best was “Civil War Scenes. 10 for 10 ct.” by Bosselman, which included a scene of the ironclads. Unsold inventory from the Jamestown Exposition, they were mostly wholesaled to various local firms, such as American Art Works of New Haven, Conn. And thus ends the saga of the Merrimac and Monitor and the many postcards published about them.
The 1909 Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition card by E.W. McConnell promoting the Midway sideshow recreation of the famed battle.
