Movie Info

In this light-hearted musical, Norwegian Olympic gold medalist Sonja Henie launched a brief but successful Hollywood career as an ice-skating actress. The plot concerns a Flo Ziegfeld-like producer (Adolph Menjou) who with his latest variety show is on a European tour. It has not been terribly successful and the performers are hungry and nearly broke as they travel towards Switzerland. The producer and his troupe's luck changes dramatically when they discover a beautiful ice skater practicing on a lonely frozen lake.Turns out, she is trying to make it to the Olympics where she hopes to follow her father's footsteps and earn a medal. Sure enough, she succeeds and the producer signs her to a contract and debuts her at Madison Gardens where she becomes an instant star. Trouble comes when it begins looking like the producer wants to exploit her talents. Fortunately a newspaper reporter falls for Henie and tries his best to protect her.
