|Ricardo Montalban and friends at a cast party following a Saturday
night performance of South Pacific, in which he played the lead
role of Emile DeBeque. That's Nedra Carvajal peeking out from
behind the potato chip. Actor Ed Penn (center, hand in pocket), a
long-time friend of the Carvajals, had a featured role in the show.
The man in white, with the glasses, is Gordon Brown, who had,
just a few months before this, directed a National Capital Area
production of South Pacific, in which Joe Carvajal played the role
of Joe Cable, the Marine Corps officer who sings "Younger Than
Springtime" to his little Tonkinese girl friend. The man on the right
played Luther Billis in this Ricardo Montalban production.
