There are some famous old ads for Mellin's baby food showing a chubby and adorable rosy-cheeked baby. Who would possibly guess by looking at them that the model for those illustrations would grow up to be cynical tough-guy actor Humphrey Bogart? And that they were drawn by his mother, the successful and well-known commercial artist Maud Humphrey?
