A scene from A Girl in Every Port with Marie Casajuana

Here is a scene from the 1928 film, A Girl in Every Port, directed by Howard Hawks. This short scene features the lovely, Spanish-born beauty queen and actress Marie Casajuana. Shortly after making this film, she changed her name to Maria Alba.

Maria Alba (19 March 1910, in Barcelona, Cataluña, Spain – 26 October 1999, in San Diego, California), appeared in 25 feature films, starting with A Girl in Every Port in 1928 and ending with La morena de mi copla in 1946. Her most notable appearance was as "Saturday" in the 1932 Douglas Fairbanks film Mr. Robinson Crusoe. She also appeared in Hell's Heroes (1929), directed by William Wyler, and The Return of Chandu (1934), with Bela Lugosi.

Just recently, the New Yorker wrote-up A Girl in Every Port. Read the piece by Richard Brody.
