Description:
  Today there is a certain stigma that surrounds smoking, but that wasn't always the case: For many years the silver screen was practically paradise for smokers. This is where cigarette smoking became an institutionalized ritual in which the cool hero wasn't worth his salt without a glowing fag, and a cigarette in the hand of a female star was regarded as sign of emancipation.

And when a male film star offered a woman a light, it was partially seen as a type of erotic ceremony. SMOKE GETS IN YOUR EYES is an homage to the stars that smoked on the silver screen.
