1938 Double Mint Gum - McCall Snow White Dress Ad

In the July 1938 issue of Movie Mirror magazine (p.9), a Wrigley's Double Mint Chewing Gum ad featured a McCall Dress Pattern for a "Snow White Double Mint party frock". The advertisement was also seen in other publications, including that same month in Hollywood (p.35).
