"Der Fuehrer's Face" (1943) - Hirohito, Hitler, and Mousolini Production Background

Just realized that I hadn't finished posting this image from "Der Fuehrer's Face." The other posting was the sheet music from the film.

It really is a nice stand-alone piece that has it's own satire -- and it is certainly reflective of the stereotypes of the period! Color and shading are really very well done...
