The only time a Macy's Thanksgiving Day balloon was made in the image of a living person was in the late 1920s (don't know the exact year offhand) when the parade featured a balloon of Eddie Cantor in cowboy gear in his role in the hit Broadway musical KID BOOTS.

(And I have a photo of it somewhere, but I can't find it, darnit)
"Christ, Bette Davis?!?!"
