Pretty in Pink 1920s style: an innovatively hand-coloured cinema advert for Twink dye.
Advert 1922 5 mins Silent
Long before the Brat Pack, here is a 1920s version of Pretty in Pink. Jean Millar plays ‘The Only Girl’, told by her artist lover and widowed father that her clothes are too grey. This cinema ad for Twink dye takes the innovative approach of hand-colouring the black-and-white print to recreate the dyeing process, with added rainbow flourishes.
