In this scene from Miss Sadie Thompson (1953), Rita Hayworth shows us an entire collection of Lucien Lelong perfumes. Those are the huge bottles used for the Eau de Cologne of his very famous fragrances. But the extravagant golden bottle is Orgueil, one of the most beautiful perfumes ever created and a perfect choice for the flamboyant Rita. The other one is Indiscret, with its exquisite bottle, while the last one is the standard bottle used for perfume extracts. Product placement for fragrances in movies is as old as Hollywood and I showed in the past several early examples from the silent era for Caron, Ybry, Guerlain, Lengyel, etc.
