The below ad, from 1926, is real. This ad might have planted the seed for Kodak's "Death Campaign" of 1932. The Death Campaign was designed, photos taken, but never completed or published. It's sometimes alluded to as having actually been ran, but it wasn't and the remnants of it aren't in the Kodak archives. It's at the Hartman Center for Sales, Advertising, and Marketing History.

One ad was entitled 'Thanksgiving 1930 - The last time we were ever to be together' with a photo of a father, 3 children, and 2 grandparents. Another, has a little girl walking by the ocean with the caption 'It was the last picture we got of her'. WHO THE HELL THOUGHT THIS WAS A GOOD IDEA?!?! It's obvious why it never ran; but how did it get so far along? Something we'll never know.

from the director who brought you Nosferatu comes a romantic comedy where man plans to strangle and drown his wife, then has a change of heart and decides to have a fun romantic romp about town instead
