Growing up, little girls everywhere admired Lark Voorhies (better known as Lisa Turtle from Saved By The Bell). Her timeless ‘90s character was spunky, fashionable and gorgeous. Unfortunately, despite her adorn fame, Voorhies’ acting dwindled shortly after her time as a teen star.
Last year, Voorhies’ name once again entered the mainstream, but for troubling reasons, as her mother reported that her 40-year-old daughter has bipolar disorder. Although Voorhies denied having a mental illness, her questionable actions still raised red flags and since that time she’s pretty much stayed off the scene. Until now.

2. St. Louis Blues, 1929 RKO/Sack Amusements FREE Screening (one of several shorts), Feb. 26th, 7:30pm, Rock Hall - This sixteen-minute short film shot in Astoria, Queens, New York City, is blues singer Bessie Smith’s only screen role. In it, she plays a long-suffering wife of an uncaring gambler. Co-produced by W.C. Handy, author of the title song, the film also features Isabelle Washington (sister of actress Fredi Washington) who plays the “other woman.” Pianist James P. Johnson and the Hall Johnson Choir accompanied Smith and added to the overwhelming pathos of her singing, making this dramatized interpretation of the blues a true film classic.2 of 6
