Dancer and actress Louise Franklin strikes a pose in this September 15, 1941 publicity photo with Duke Ellington for his musical, “Jump For Joy,” which played at the Mayan Theater in Los Angeles. A young Dorothy Dandridge also appeared in the musical. A native of Kansas City, Missouri, Ms. Franklin appeared in many films (often uncredited) from the 1930s through the 1950s. She also danced in the films “Cabin in the Sky” and “Stormy Weather.” Photo: John Reed, Herald Examiner Collection, Los Angeles Public Library.
