Jolson impersonations in Hitler's bunker

Just seen the photo of Eva Braun dressed up as the late, great Al Jolson. She looks very fetching, if you like that sort of thing.
It is particularly poignant that this was taken in the bunker during the closing overs of the war. Hitler was obviously feeling less than chirpy at this point as all his plans for world domination lay in ruins, and Eva thought that her famous rendition of 'Swanee River' might cheer him up.

History does not record the Fuhrer's reaction to this but suffice to say he put a loaded Luger to his head and pulled the trigger. "That could have gone better," she must have thought. That's show business.
