Don Martin is a star hockey player with the Wildcats until he is barred from Hockey for hitting a referee. Through the actions of Chris, Don is able to get a job with Buzz Fletcher's ice-show as the novelty act. Chris trains with Don and he is a success, and they marry. But Gale is also interested in Don and when Don has a chance to leave and join Jack's premiere show, Gale takes him drinking. As an alcoholic, he is in no shape to skate for Jack; so Buzz has Chris do a routine. Her act is great and Jack wants her, without Don, for his ice skating show. Don leaves her to allow her to go on to stardom. Written by

It's a Pleasure lives up to its title when one measures the joy of seeing Sonja Henie doing what she does best
Watching this was a rare treat to see since it was the only time I got to see ice skating star Sonja Henie in Technicolor as opposed to black and white. She's still impressive as an ice dancer this late in her career and also was compellingly good in her one number without skates. The story has her married to a hockey star who's been banned from the sport because of some unruly behavior. So she gets him in the show as another skater but things get complicated when the boss's wife has designs on him. Since this was made during the Production Code, nothing explicit happens or is even implied. And I'm guessing this was very much meant to be a family picture, anyway, as evidenced by the added formula of some kids near the end. In summary, It's a Pleasure was quite enjoyable as fluff so that's a recommendation.
