Signature of the British dancer and figure skater.
Signature: "Belita", 5¼x3½. British dancer and figure skater Belita (1923-2005), born Maria Belita Jepson-Turner, originally trained as a ballerina before becoming a figure skater. In 1936, Belita skated for the United Kingdom in the Olympics at the age of 12, and she turned professional two years later. Belita made her film debut in 1941's Ice Capades, and she would go on to showcase her many talents (which also included swimming - she is credited as the first to do an underwater ballet, fencing and playing the violin as well as skating and dancing) in several feature films, including The Ice Maiden (her nickname), Silver Skates (1945) and Silk Stockings (1957). Lightly creased. Mounting remnants and glue stains on verso lightly show through at upper and lower blank margins. Overall, fine condition.
