OLGA SAN JUAN
Shown as a blonde, inundated with flowers
Photograph inscribed and signed: "To Jesus,/Olga San Juan". B/w, 5x7. Ink note (unknown hand): Taupier Studio, New York. Born in Brooklyn to Puerto Rican parents, Olga San Juan (1927-2009) danced the fandango for FDR at the White House at age 11, and was performing in New York nightclubs in her teens. Signed by Paramount, she was soon hoofing with Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire in Blue Skies (1946) and with Donald O'Connor in Are You With It? (1948). With her hair dyed, she became the first blonde "Latin spitfire." First and foremost a singer and dancer, she was also adept at comedy, and especially for her mangling of the English language. After marrying actor Edmund O'Brien in 1948, she starred in the Broadway show Paint Your Wagon (1951), but otherwise devoted herself mostly to supporting roles in his movies (like The Barefoot Contessa, 1954) and to raising a family. Heavily creased. Minor surface scratches (not visible head on). Ink note (unknown hand) on verso (minor show through). Otherwise, fine condition.
