MAA could probably fill a few dozen “Blast from the Past” columns with John Webster commercials but the one that stands out for me is from around 1980 for John Smith’s Bitter. It features the lovely flat-capped Gordon Rollings and his acrobatic Jack Russell, “Tonto”. 40 years on it still makes me smile.
