I've been on vacation so I'm playing catch up! I'm almost positive the guy on the far right is actor, Jack Scalia. I have some very old ads from the mid 70s and I always thought he was one of the models in them. He does not show up anywhere in the Peter Marlowe archives, however, which surprises me as I would think he would have been one of the top models at the time. Of course, he went on to become an actor in the "movie of the week" genre and left his modeling career behind (with that chin and those lips, who can blame him?)!

Scott Webster, 49
GQ cover model was face of many products
October 13, 2004|By Patrick Rucker, Tribune Staff Reporter.
The public knew Scott Webster as a ChemLawn enthusiast, a man spellbound by Chanel No. 19 and a promoter of Coca-Cola and Reese's Pieces. Behind the glossy ads, billboard images and television screens was a journeyman model with a face the camera loved.
"He had a wonderful personality that came out in his work," said Shirley Hamilton, whose agency represented Mr. Webster in the late 1970s. "It's a look that just comes out in the eyes."
Scott Dayton Webster, 49, died of heart failure and lymphoma Monday, Sept. 27, in Highland Park Hospital.
In the fickle world of modeling, Mr. Webster had an unusually long and fruitful career. During the height of his fame, his face was seen on the cover of GQ and he was spoken of as having "the look of the '80s."
People who worked with Mr. Webster attribute his success to a natural image that was both wholesome and glamorous.
"People used to say it was his everyday all-American look," said his father, James, who as an advertising executive gave his son his first experience in front of the camera.
Mr. Webster was 8 years old when he was featured enjoying a summer day for a brochure to promote Savings & Loan of America. "He was just this cute little kid with a baseball cap and glove sitting and eating a huge bowl of ice cream," his father said.
After attending Lake Forest High School where he excelled at golf, Mr. Webster went to Northern Illinois University, where he studied journalism before he returned to Chicago in 1978 to pursue modeling.
As his booking agent, Hamilton was responsible for keeping Mr. Webster busy. That was never a problem. For several years in the late 1970s, he was a regular model for Chicago photographer Victor Skrebneski."He was a gentleman and rather shy," Skrebneski said. "He was only about 20 years old and so probably just starting, but he was here, sometimes everyday, for two years. He was a lovely young man."
In Chicago, Mr. Webster did regular work for Marshall Field's and was even featured in a concert poster holding Diana Ross on his shoulders.
Before long, the virtues that made Mr. Webster a successful model in Chicago carried him to New York.
Through the early 1980s, Mr. Webster continued to live in New York and stayed busy with regular work. His face promoted cologne, fine liqueurs and many other products. He even did a cameo on "The Love Boat," his father said.
By the 1990s, Mr. Webster began to get out of modeling and started a beverage company, Montego Bay, in Lake Forest. At one time the company supplied beverages to United Airlines and Wal-Mart, his family said.
Although he stopped modeling in 1992, Mr. Webster would occasionally see his image.
In 2001, he sued cigarette giant R.J. Reynolds and its ad agency for using a test shot from Mr. Webster's early modeling career to promote Camel cigarettes. He spotted the magazine ad while at a gym. The case was settled out of court, Mr. Webster's attorney said.
