Aluminium the ingredient that causes Alzheimer's what a great idea that was thanks a lot. She seems dumb enough to start with without any help.

Patty, there's no proven link between aluminum and Alzheimer's, according to the Alzheimer's Association.

Maybe so, but studies are still being done and some scientists still are looking for a link.

@GES: Yes, there actually was a link found between 'luminnniumna and all-timers but they forgot what is is.

REF J. McCarthy: God didn't build these models for smarts.

The actress is Carol Wayne, perhaps most remembered as Johnny Carson's "Matinee Lady". She played that particular "dumb blonde" role over 100 times.

Excellent research, Frank!

Frank, Paul, etc.--

That's not Carol Wayne; that's Louisa Moritz, just like the caption on the ad says. She's a Yale grad, it seems, and just to bring this up to date, she's one of the women who has accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault. Long career in film and TV...

Mike, I think you are right. It never occurred to me that the name on the screen would be anything other then something from a script. But after looking at the two actresses, I don't think there's any question but that this is Ms. Moritz. Their vocal qualities are different, and, then there is also the difference in their heights. Carol Wayne was 5'9", and Moritz is 5'. The woman in the commercial is nowhere near 5'9".

Thanks for the clarification, Mike!
