The Authenticity-Obsessive Folks at “Mad Men” Meet the Even More Authenticity-Obsessed Folks Online

Posted on April 13, 2013 at 8:00 am

“Mad Men” producer Matthew Weiner is famously obsessive about the authenticity of the period detail on the show, even making sure that a child did not play with an Etch-a-Sketch in an episode set in 1960 because it was not introduced until later that year.  But that is just an engraved invitation for online commenters who have come up with a list of “Mad Men” anachronisms collected by New York Magazine’s Vulture blog, from a crash cymbal to a nighttime football game with slo-mo.

Mad Men-era Ads in Newsweek

Posted on March 24, 2012 at 8:00 am

Newsweek salutes the long-awaited return of “Mad Men” with a special issue this week, including examples of real and unabashedly sexist ads that ran in the magazine back in the 1960’s.  These are what the real Mad Men of the era were working on, along with some pioneering and underpaid Mad Women like Peggy.
