Does anyone know the names of any oldtime B movies that show the advertising business? I am giving a presentation to agency people and want to show how movies have depicted ad guys as know people sitting in a board room plotting how to mold minds of consumers

In the vein of "Putney Swope"

"How to Get Ahead in Advertising" is not so old, but it's still very dark and fun. It certainly makes all parties look sleezy. I think it was British. Worth looking into.

Another 80's flick with ad execs is that one with Tom Hanks and Jackie Gleason ... they made it into a TV show. Kinda makes ad people look nice, though.

Still another recent flick is that horrible movie with Dudley Moore ... "Crazy People." The one with the "Boxy But Safe" Volvo ad. The ads were funny, the movie was not.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
