Here's another magazine ad for the 1959 Rambler, one of numerous such advertisements during the 1957-60 period featuring a comic strip featuring some poor soul who was not happy with his big gas guzzler, and after looking over those cute little foreign cars, became sold on Rambler's big-car room and small-car handling ease and economy.

Pictured here is the Rambler four-door sedan.

Jack Carter, Comedian Who Brought Rapid-Fire Delivery To TV, R.I.P.

Jack Carter, the Brooklyn-born son of Russian immigrants who would  go on to become one of television's first stars and is best remembered as a stand-up comedian known for his rapid-fire delivery and impressions, and whose career continued into the 21st Century, passed away on Sunday at his Beverly Hills, California home from respiratory failure just days after his 93rd birthday.

Mr. Carter was a frequent guest on The Ed Sullivan Show and his impersonations of the "Great Stone Face" even brought a smile or two to Mr. Sullivan.

Unlike many other comedians of his generation, Jack did not come out of the Catskill Mountains; instead he came from the theater.

After appearing in a number of plays during the 1940s, Jack hosted a short-lived ABC Network television show entitled American Minstrels of 1949, before becoming the original host of DuMont's Cavalcade of Stars.

In 1950, NBC signed him to host a Saturday night variety show which ran a couple of seasons.

Jack would appear in movies, on numerous TV shows, and on Broadway during the course of a career that would last for nearly three-quarters of a century.
