Another non-speaking and uncredited
part for Rita in this classic black and white film, which
also starred Montgomery Clift (but unfortnately not in
a scene with Rita).
Rita plays an inmate in "Lions View State Asylum".
She appears in two scenes.
The first in the opening of the film she walks across
the crowded room full of women until she gets to her rocking
chair and gives a nasty look to the women sitting in it
until the woman gets up and moves Rita sits down with
a smile on her face and rocks back and fourth while knitting.
The final scene comes near the end of
the film as Elizabeth Taylor nearly jumps over the top
of the balcony, as the inmates watch and cackle eagerly.
It's Rita's rocking in her chair, grinning as the camera
keeps showing close ups of her face that finally pushes
Taylor over the edge. But she is pulled to safety by one
of the staff. Rita creates a really scary moment in this
short but exceptional non-speaking part.
