Present at the Creation: The Marlboro Man

As part of Present at the Creation, a series exploring the origins of American cultural icons, NPR's Kathleen Schalch reviews the history of The Marlboro Man. The cigarette brand had been marketed to women, but in the 1950's, a new ad campaign was created to appeal to machismo of the World War Two generation male.
