Mr. Reynolds uses these before and after images in his video and live talks. He employs storytelling, skillfully telling the sad story of Sean Marsee, a promising high school track star who started using chewing tobacco in his mid teens. Sean became addicted and died of mouth and jaw cancer at 19.

Mr. Reynolds shows these heart wrenching before-and-after photos of Sean Marsee, who lived in Oklahoma in the 1970’s. This part of the video makes a very compelling case, especially to younger children, to remain tobacco free. None will remain unmoved after hearing this sad story.

This image was created from the one directly above it. In one highly successful art design, it was superimposed with the image at left.

In the version for download below, the black area overhead was extended to create a vertical layout. The extra black area on top left room for poster copy, and matched the image at left when the two images were superimposed.

in 1946, age 30, newly married to R.J. REYNOLDS, JR.

A former starlet under contract to Warner Brothers, Marianne began smoking around after meeting R.J. Jr., because she thought it would please her husband. However, he was very displeased about her starting the habit, even though he smoked himself. In later years she developed angina, and two heart attacks. She died in Miami in 1985, from an aneurism of the stomach.

R.J.REYNOLDS, who founded the tobacco company in 1875, began manufacturing Camel cigarettes in 1913. He died in 1918, of cancer of the pancreas, after a lifetime of chewing tobacco — ironically, the same product which established his fortune, and earlier, his father’s, in the tobacco business. Studies have linked cancer of the pancreas to chewing tobacco. He married at age 53, and died at age 67, when his eldest son, RJ Reynolds, Jr., was just 12. As a result, R.J. Jr. would never spend much time working in the tobacco business, nor would any of R.J. Jr.’s 6 sons.
