The BBC reported today about a movie poster archive being donated to the Oscar Academy organisation. One of the posters shown illustrates a supposed college student (the actress is probably in her thirties) complete with Uke! - Interestingly, George Burns gets a higher billing that Bob Hope, I thought that unusual for 1938).

So, does anyone else know of any images of Uke playing in movie posters?

Burns and Allen were huge radio stars in 1938, while Bob Hope's star was still on the rise.

Here's a poster for ya, though:
