    Ice skating show in Pittsburgh.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "RHYTHM ON THE RINK".

    Pittsburgh, United States of America (USA).

    Various shots of chorus of young men and women in modified cowboy's costumes with many stars and stripes around skating across the ice rink. The show is called 'Ice Capades of 1941'. The star of the show, Belita, comes out on the rink. She twists and turns with grace. Next is a comedy act - a man dressed as a woman 'learns' to skate.

    The comedian at the end is Eric Waite who did 2 Command Performances for King George and Queen Elizabeth in 1938 and 39. The British press called him "the man who made the queen laugh". He was in Ice Capades from 1940 through 1964.
