How's this for a coincidence? This afternoon I was watching a British film
called "The Radio Parade of 1935", made in 1934. There was a reference to
Josephine Baker's "banana dance" by comedian Ronald Frankau. Not only that
there was an appearance by Alberta Hunter in a colour sequence.

Additionally, Frankau made a reference to Hitler, so he must have been
making some sort of impression that early.
