Frankfurt, Germany, April 25, 1954: Entertainer Danny Kaye, stopping briefly at the Rhein-Main airport on his way to South Africa, meets his match in mugging for the camera. His co-star in this photo is nine-month-old Peter Habekotte of the Netherlands and Nairobi, Kenya, who was also Africa-bound. Following his visit to South Africa, Kaye was to spend two months in the Far East as ambassador-at-large for UNICEF, the United Nations children's fund with which Kaye became so closely associated that when the organization won the 1965 Nobel Peace Prize, he was chosen to accept the award.
