The sheet music for I'll Be Somewhere In France features art by classic illustrator Raphael Kirchner. Many point to his beautiful women as the start of the pin up girls of the 1930s and 1940s.

These are neat, I have a friend who collected beautiful old sheet music, and he had several that were done by Grim Natwick of "Betty Boop" fame.

have a post involving Eddie cantor at my page too. De Soto extensively used celebritites as promotional for their cars, and there is Walt Disney as well as Ann Southern.
