1945. Look at the size of that turntable’s tone arm! What a piece of kit around which to rehearse. The Gay Senorita is a featherweight comedy that has pretty much sunk without trace. It tells the story of how romance with a lovely señorita convinces a building contractor to abandon his plans to take over a Mexican housing district. A caption on the back of the photo reads:
LEARNING LYRICS … Jinx Falkenburg and Isabelita rehearse their musical numbers for a scene in Columbia’s new musical romance, “The Gay Senorita.” Truck Krone, of the studio sound department, keeps the music going.
Isabelita, also known as Isabelita Y Miguel, is Lita Baron, born in Almeria, Spain in 1929.
Truck Krone is listed at IMDb as working primarily in the Camera and Electrical Department, not the Sound Department.
