George plays an aspiring news photographer that gets pictures by way of a spy camera in his bow tie. Comic confusion and chases arise from his inadvertently taking blackmail-able snaps of an important editor,and on-ice confrontations with his figure-skating love interest's jealous boyfriend, including in the middle of a professional hockey match.

After the big success of "Keep Fit" in 1937, Basil Dean rushed its stars, George Formby and Kay Walsh into another topical vehicle, "I See Ice" which capitalized on the ice hockey craze then hitting England. While Cyril Richard may seem an odd choice for the romantic jock-villain, the film is fast-paced with lots of good slapstick and some lively songs. George Formby in top form if not in his top material, and Kay Walsh is delicious.
