"It’s fun to eat" with Elena

About This Item

A KPIX-TV cooking program, produced in San Francisco by Richard Dinsmore in 1950, featuring scenes of Elena Zelayeta and her son Billy demonstrating how to prepare a pickled tuna recipe using 'fresherator' cookware products. This program was filmed by Willat and Diner to air in the Los Angeles area and was written by Jean Welke. It is of note that Elena was blind and had strings attached to her ankles on-set. There were two cameras filming her and when she needed to turn from one camera to another, someone would tug on the appropriate string to let her know (S.F. Examiner, 2/3/1953).
