As we see, even the lovely Dona Drake (November 15, 1914 - June 20, 1989) had to clean her own fridge thanks to the help of her cocker spaniel and two Siamese cats in this 1942 photo.
Dona was a singer, dancer, and actress active from about 1935 to 1955. She was born Eunice Westmoreland, which I think would have made a great stage name. Dona ended up having at least 5 stage names: Dona Drake, Rita Rio, Rita Novella, Rita Shaw, and Una Velon. Dona played mostly ethnic roles and Hollywood billed her as being born in Mexico (even though she was born in Miami, Florida).
Dona toured the country as Rita Rio and Her All Girl Band. From what I've seen, they were quite fabulous.
