The source says 1960s, but I think it's 1950s. Very interesting; check it:

And here's an ad from Mr Razor, putting it at 1956 at the price of six and six as per the TV ad Smile

That commercial makes me want one and I don't even like vintage Gillettes.

Don’t know how I missed this. I like how the logo is oriented properly when the lid’s open.

Curious. How does mr razor come to copyright Gillette’s advertising?

I think he copyrights his own images, not the object of the image.

There are other clips on this site worth looking at, but you'll see the person who assembled or titled them was a bit dyslexic or something: "Sliver" instead of "Silver". Sometimes deliberately mis-spelling can bring about interesting results, i..e "Bakerlite" for "Bakelite", or "flair tip" for "flare tip"...
