Newsreel cameraman Bob Clemens, an avowed woman hater, is assigned to cover the Lake Placid exhibition of Karen Vadja, the Swiss ice Queen. He misses his plane and fails to get the footage needed for a newsreel. Deciding that if you've seen one ice skater, you've seen them all, he goes to Central Park to film a skater picked at random. He selects Marie Bergin who is wanted by the immigration people for having over-stayed her visa. Bob does not adjust his newsreel camera for a long shot and she shows very clearly in close-ups. Promoter Larry Herman sees the newsreel and seeing that she is very talented and very pretty, decides to star her in an ice-spectacle to be called the "Ice-Capades." He sends for Karen Vadja's agent, since that is the name the skater is identified as in the newsreel, draws up and signs a contract and invites the press to join him when he meets her. Dismay mildly describes his feeling when he learns that he has obligated himself to build a show around a ... Written by

Pleasant, innocuous skating musical using Capades stars
This is an innocuous, pleasant, run of the mill "B" musical - photographer discovers skater, mistakenly bills her as a famous star and must have her help him keep up the act to save his job. The scoring earned a deserved Oscar nom but the real joy here is seeing a number of stars of the Ice Capades perform. Lead James Ellison resembles Christopher Reeve at times and Barbara Jo Allen is a scream as Vera Vague. It passes the time.
