"One in a Million" is a cheery, lighthearted mix of comedy, romance, songs
and ice skating dances, directed by Sidney Lanfield ("Sing, Baby, Sing"). It
is an admirable vehicle and showcase for the Norwegian Olympic skating
champion Sonja Henie in her American debut. The film derives some aspects
from Sonja's career. Sonja plays an amateur Swiss skater who is discovered
by an American theatrical troupe leader (Adolphe Menjou) and almost spoils
her by putting in a professional show until a charismatic reporter (Don
Ameche) rescues her and convinces her into making the right decision,
leading to her spectacular performance at Madison Square
"One in a Million" is not one of the better Fox musicals, but there are
enjoyably fine moments, including some very funny comic acts by the Ritz
Brothers, especially toward the end, and one memorable musical number "Who's
Afraid Of Love", sung by Ameche.
