The musical genius Thomas Fats Waller 1904 - 1943

One of his many hits was the song "Ain't Misbehavin'" which he must have performed with a heavy sense of irony. He had a huge passion for showgirls, alchohol, hamburgers and reefers...

The burlesque artiste in the foreground was borrowed from a black and white photograph of Loretta Young.

The background chorus girl was borrowed from the film Pal Joey and painted 7 times to make up the chorus line.
