      This poster is part of a stylish, mid-century modern ad campaign for the S.S. United States; it presented the "unrushables"- a lifestyle campaign touting how stepping out of the frantic pace of modern life into the slower, elegant, romantic, peaceful and decadent way of life on board this ship was so wonderful. The phrase along with this same image (and many others) was also used in magazine ads. They all featured hip, attractive young couples in contemporary fashions.
