Virginia E. Belmont, also spelled Virginia Belmonte (September 20, 1921 – May 6, 2014), was an American film actress.
Born Virginia E. Califano in New York City, she graduated from UCLA and then started working as a cigarette girl at Mocambo. Belmont received her first acting role, uncredited, in the 1944 film Black Arrow. Following a number of supporting roles for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and RKO films, she was put under contract with Monogram Pictures, starring in several B-movies as the heroine opposite William Boyd, Jimmy Wakely, and Johnny Mack Brown, among others.
In 1941 Belmont married the native-born Italian restaurateur Albert Califano, and in the late 1940s they moved to Rome, where she continued her film career in the Italian industry, starring in a number of melodrama films, while Califano worked as a correspondent for The Hollywood Reporter. In the late 1950s she retired from acting and moved back in the U.S., where she was employed by United Airlines as a sales rapresentative.
