Belita - Rotten Tomatoes

Belita



Born in England, Gladys Lyne Jepson-Turner, aka Belita was a professional skater from childhood. A star at 14, Belita toured the U.S. at 15, then settled into a long run as the main attraction of the Ice Capades--which was also the title of her first film. While at Monogram in the mid-1940s, Belita was given plenty of opportunities to skate, but also spent an inordinate amount of time in glum film noir efforts like Suspense (1946) and The Gangster (1947). Belita pursued her film career on a limited basis throughout the 1950s, appearing in such musicals as Invitation to the Dance (1956) and Silk Stockings (1957).
