Belita lady let s dance 1944

Lady, Let's Dance is a 1944 black-and-white film directed by Frank Woodruff that was nominated for two Oscars. Produced by Monogram Studios, the film is unique as an ice skating musical.


Lady, Let's Dance stars ice skater Belita as herself, James Ellison, and Walter Catlett. Appearances also include ice skating artists Myrtle Godfrey and the renowned comedy ice team Werner Groebli & Hansruedi (Hans) Mauch (more commonly known as Frick and Frack).

The plot focuses on Belita as she travels to a California resort, where she is unexpectedly hired as a last minute dance team replacement. She becomes a national star while the handsome resort manager gets fired and becomes a drifter, until he ends up in the Army.

Edward Kay's Oscar-nominated score included: "Golden Dreams", "Silver Shadows", "In the Days of Beau Brummel", "Ten Million Men and a Girl", "Dream of Dreams", "Rio", "Happy Hearts", "Esperanza", and the title song "Lady, Let's Dance".

Myrtle Godfrey sported the same green bonnet with ostrich plume worn by Vivien Leigh in Gone with the Wind.
