About

William Thourlby, who was the original Marlboro cigarette advertising model, lives here. Mr. Thourlby has had a fascinating life, having been adopted by Jim Thorpe in an American Indian ceremony, and having had some notable acting roles. In an article about him in the New York Times, 8/5/12, at NJ 12, it says "After Thorpe's death in 1953, Mr. Thourlby's agent sent him on a casting call for Marlboro cigarettes. He posed bare-chested with a cowboy hat for a shoot that lasted several hours and was paid a one-time fee of $300, Mr. Thourlby said."
