( b. Feb 26, 1926 New York, New York, USA - d. Oct 04, 2011 New York, New York, USA ) Female
Born in New York City, to Jewish immigrants from Russia, Belack met her husband at a summer stock company. She got most of her early work in soap operas.
With her long, saturnine face and hard dark eyes, Ms. Belack was adept at portraying tough, skeptical characters, often with an edge of humor.
Ms. Belack made her Broadway debut in Semi-Detached, a 1960 play produced by her intrepid husband. Many of her subsequent Broadway appearances were also in Rose outings, including The Heroine (1963), Nathan Weinstein, Mystic, Connecticut (1966), The Ninety Day Mistress (1967) and The Cemetery Club (1990).
