EIGHTEEN YEAR OLD PATRICIA MUNZEL*, the singing thrush from Spokane, who got herself into the Metropolitan by winning an audition, has a Hollywood job. She is signing a contract with Jack Warner that will pay her in the neighborhood of $50,000 a picture. He is now looking for stories for her. The state of Washington is very proud of their songbird, who is very young to sing operatic roles.
*This is Patrice Munsel, who was recently featured in Life magazine, if you’ll recall.
