So, you're an American!
Are you a millionaire?
Well, a few of us aren't.
Is it true that in America they have buildings as high as this mountain?
Why do they build them so high?
I beg pardon?
Why...do they build 'em...so high?
Oh! Well, that's so the people that build them and can't seem to rent them have a nice place to jump off.

Non-typical Sonja Henie vehicle lands with a thud...
Not much can be said for SONJA HENIE's attempt to show her boss Darryl F. Zanuck (whom she couldn't tolerate) that she was an actress as well as a first class skater.
Result: The dullest of all the Henie vehicles--and quite the opposite of another commentator who says "typical Sonja Henie fluff." Nothing could be farther from the truth. This is definitely not a typical Henie vehicle. It's merely a dull story of two reporters (RAY MILLAND and ROBERT CUMMINGS) who seek the truth regarding a Nobel Prize-winning author and who vie for the affections of his daughter. The humor is sparse and the incidents involving Nazis during World War II falls flat.
Sonja does get a chance to act--with less than satisfying results. Furthermore, she only gets a chance to skate once during the entire film.
Milland and Cummings are competent enough but the script is a dull affair and no one comes out of this one smelling like a rose, most of all the writers who concocted this far-fetched story.
