70s Spots: Polaroid – Garner & Hartley

Polaroid, 1970s. You had one.

In the late 1970s and early 80s Polaroid Cameras were advertised by the charming team of actors, James Garner (Maverick, The Rockford Files) and Mariette Hartley (The Twilight Zone, Star Trek). They had real charisma together and we enjoyed each new “mini-episode”. Many folks mistakenly believed that the two were married in real life, but that was not the case.

Polaroid filed for bankruptcy in 2008 and stopped making the iconic instant film and cameras. In 2010 the company name was purchased and “vintage-style” Polaroid cameras are now back on the market.
