Endeavour S05E02 (Cartouche)

endeavour_s05e02_bornunicornGuilia Gallo is reading an issue of Movies Monthly, which has a Max Factor advert as back cover. Lucille Ball stars in it, introducing new shades of lipstick. While I appreciate the effort, there’s a problem here: the episode is set in the late 1960s, while the advert is from the 1940s. The actress on the magazine cover is Veronique Carlton (Betty Denville), who appears in the episode; from this we know that the magazine is recent and not from 20 years earlier.
