One of those ironies


General Culture

It’s one of those ironies that the person who represented the Marlboro Man - the tough, rugged cowboy and face of the cigarette brand - died of lung cancer. In fact, there were two actors and both suffered from the same fate (see, for example, this page or this page). And it’s an added irony to read that James Blake Miller has had lots of problems, too. Mr Miller has been known as the “Marlboro Marine” from a photo Luis Sinco took - a terrible cliché war photograph if there ever was one.
