A dazzling performance from Sonja Henie makes this thrilling romance truly a pleasure! Triple Olympic Gold Medalist Sonja Henie stars as Chris Linden, a star skater who falls for Don (Michael O'Shea), a young hockey player with a drinking problem who's been permanently banned from his sport for punching a referee. Through Chris, Don gets a second chance - as a performer in a professional skating show. But when beautiful Gale Fletcher (Marie McDonald), an ice queen with an agenda, arrives on the scene, she threatens to undermine Don's efforts to stay sober in this heart-grabbing, opulent cinematic effort whose music and skating performances will leave you breathless.

Sonja Henie stars as Chris Linden, a talented skater who falls in love with Don Martin (Michael O'Shea), a drunken hockey player who gets disqualified from the sport after he beats up the referee. It's a standard "Star is Born" story but given lots of life thanks to Henie and O'Shea's winning chemistry. Musical theatre singer Bill Johnson (as the ice-troupe manager) and Marie McDonald (his coldly-manipulative wife) are also impressive.
Sonja Henie, always so youthful and innocent in her early vehicles like "Second Fiddle" and "Sun Valley Serenade" is allowed to show a more mature, dramatic side to her personality in this movie. Three years later she'd appear in her final movie ("The Countess of Monte Cristo") before going into semi-retirement.
One for the Sonja fans.
