Ginger Young is a red-haired, green-eyed, grandly structured (36-23-36) girl, whose shapely legs were carrying her up the ladder of success as an actress. She appeared on the Jerry Lewis Show, the Steve Allen Show, a Ford Spectacular and Murder, Inc., among other TV entertainments, and was seen (via special film clip) in the posh stage musical Pink Jungle, which did not reach Broadway because the star (another Ginger named Rogers) took exception to Agnes Moorehead’s out-of-town rave notices.

Don Lewis” first appeared, as far as I can tell, in 1966 in the pages of Playboy magazine’s quarterly periodical for Playboy Club members, VIP, with six cartoons spread over two years of the club’s trademark waitress Bunny.

Lewis thereafter made just four more appearances in the magazine, late 1966-1968, pin up cartoons. The earlier Bunny cartoons shown here, the keyholder cartoon is dated July 1965, are very tight, done in gouache and watercolor, much tighter than the last three examples in the magazine seemingly done in a loose, offhand watercolor.


I can find no other mention of Lewis anywhere, in any facet of American illustration or art, from the 30s to the 70s, and no other example, so, if that’s true, it’s likely a pseudonym.  Pete Hawley used pseudonyms a lot, wouldn’t it make sense to use one in this instance, especially if his name was associated in the 60s with brand name baby or child-like impossibly cute big eye art? Does it look like Hawley? I think it does. The angular, corseted, small waist, the expert handling of the limbs that is both simple and gorgeous. Note the way the Bunny costume shimmers. Whomever he or she may have been, that artist was no slouch.

Alice and Ellen Kessler (born 20 August 1936 in Nerchau, Germany) are twins popular in Europe, especially Germany and Italy, from the 1950s and 1960s and until today for their singing, dancing and acting. They are usually credited as the Kessler Twins (Die Kessler-Zwillinge in Germany and Le Gemelle Kessler in Italy where are considered an mythe of the cultural popular history of the country), and remain popular today.

11749133_tkt2In the USA, they were not as popular, but appeared in the 1963 film Sodom and Gomorrah as dancers and appeared on the cover of Life Magazine in that year.

Their parents, Paul and Elsa, sent them to ballet classes at the age of six, and they joined the Leipzig Opera’s child ballet program at age 11. When they were 18, their parents used a visitor’s visa to escape to West Germany, where they performed at the Palladium in Düsseldorf. They performed at The Lido in Paris between 1955 and 1960, and represented West Germany in the 1959 Eurovision Song Contest, finishing in 8th place with Heute Abend wollen wir tanzen geh’n (Tonight we want to go dancing).

They moved to Italy in 1960 and gradually moved to more serious roles. At the age of 40, they agreed to pose on the cover of the Italian edition of Playboy. That issue became the fastest-selling Italian Playboy up until that point.

They moved back to Germany in 1986 and currently live in Munich. They have received numerous awards from both the German and Italian governments for promoting German-Italian cooperation through their work in show business.
