    June Wilkinson was born in 1940 in Eastborne, England. She started performing at the young age of twelve, and become the youngest dancer at the age of fifteen at the Windmill Theatre in London. After coming to the United States, her career led her to become the world’s most-photographed woman of the late 50’s and 60’s, being featured in over fifty magazines and newspapers from 1958 to 1970. She appeared in several films and had television roles in such series as 77 Sunset Strip, Batman, The Doris Day Show and The ABC Comedy Hour.

    Louis Leo Prima (December 7, 1910 – August 24, 1978) was an American singer, songwriter, bandleader, and trumpeter. While rooted in New Orleans jazz, swing music, and jump blues, Prima touched on various genres throughout his career: he formed a seven-piece New Orleans-style jazz band in the late 1920s, fronted a swing combo in the 1930s and a big band group in the 1940s, helped to popularize jump blues in the late 1940s and early to mid 1950s, and performed frequently as a Vegas lounge act beginning in the 1950s. Prima is also known for providing the voice for the orangutan King Louie in the 1967 Disney film The Jungle Book.
