Olympic skating star Belita proves she’s as accomplished on the dance floor as on the ice in this gloriously heart-tugging tale of a World War II Dutch refugee’s rise from waitress to showbiz sensation. The double Oscar®-nominated score buoys specialty acts (including popular skating comics Frick and Frack) and an almost nonstop array of showcases for the leading lady. She dances en pointe in the Snow Queen Ballet, shakes her elegant caboose to a hot Latin rhythm and demonstrates her spectacular terpsichoreon-blades in a series of skating numbers. The highlight: The Spirit of Victory finale, with Belita in the foreground, the Statue of Liberty in the background and Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony thundering out in triumph.
