Special guests at the Fiesta de la Raza (Columbus Day) celebration will be Latin Americans who have contributed internationally toward recognition of the artistic achievements of their countries south of the border. They are (left to right) MGM director, Hugo Fregonese; and Ricardo Montalban, Latin American movie star now under contract to MGM, where he co-starred in "Fiesta" with Esther Williams. Accompanying Montalban will be his wife, Georgianna (Loretta Young's sister) pictured here. Camilo Lentini (lower), famed Latin American orchestra leader, will act as host of the affair at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, Saturday, October 11, 1947, with the Satin Colony and all its dignitaries in attendance.
