Actress Lita Milan, in a phone booth on Harbor Drive and Market Street, 1958. An aide to Dominican general Rafael Trujillo Jr. seems to be offering counsel. Our local paper learned that Milan fled the general's yacht to hop a chartered plane for L.A., where she'd boarded the vessel three days earlier.
"The cruise with Trujillo at first appeared to have lost Miss Milan her leading role in the movie I Mobster. Later, however, her Hollywood producer had a change of heart and she was given back the starring role.... On her return to Los Angeles last night, Miss Milan denied any romantic ties in her friendship with Trujillo."
Trujillo and Milan married in 1960.
