DAISY GIRL EXHIBIT SERIES D: Monique Corzilius Portfolio Selections

With the exception of the Daisy ad screen captures, CONELRAD obtained all of the following photographs and film stills from the Corzilius family. These images comprise a gallery of Monique ‘Cozy’ Corzilius’s professional modeling career and demonstrate the facial similarities to the Daisy Girl. Many of these photographs were maintained in scrapbooks that CONELAD’s Bill Geerhart examined during his interview visit with Monique and her father in September of 2009.

Exhibit 1-D [Monique Cozy Daisy Ad / Kool Pops Comparison]

Comparison Kids TEST

Monique ‘Cozy’ Corzilius appeared in a Kool Pops ad approximately a year after she starred in the Daisy spot in 1964. This collage contains images from both ads to enable side-by-side examination. The two left-hand photos are from the Daisy ad and the four right hand photos are from the Kool Pops ad.

Note: The Kool Pops commercial was originally shot in color, but CONELRAD is presenting the images in black and white here for comparison purposes. To see the Kool Pops ad, click here.
