These are some odd-looking gentlemen. Unless La Palina is telling us that gentlemen prefer women, who are synonymous with cigars. Well, as the mysogynist saying goes: a woman is a woman, but a good cigar is a smoke.

La Palina was a big brand, and made the owners a good deal of money. The heir to the La Palina fortune took $400,000 of the fortune and bought a few radio stations in 1929. The heir's name? William Paley.

The network: CBS.
