Storyline

Lila Leighton, the lovely ice ballerina, meets Carl Lang, former ice-show producer, at his New York City penthouse apartment. Lia refuses Lang's offer to star in his new Music Hall Ice Show. Back at the Music Hall, Lila discovers she has left her purse at Lang's apartment and returns there, and is followed by orchestra-leader Don Jordan. There, they discover that Carl has been stabbed to death. Gracie, Lila's understudy, has also followed them there and helps them remove traces of Lila's visit. They also find a pair of kid-gloves, and the laundry mark leads Don to Rita Morgan, wealthy socialite, wife of George Morgan, and Rita turns out to be a former ice-skating star for Carl Lang's Music Hall shows. Rita admits to being in Lang's apartment but says he was in excellent health when she left, and says she passed no one except a blind man.

The tearer in the film is not the Radio City Music Hall
29 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Please be aware that this film has nothing to do with the Radio City Music Hall! As an archivist re: the Music Hall..I know what is and what is not associated with the New York venue. The film's Theodore is just the "Music Hall." No Rockettes are in the film. Only wonderful ice skaters plus superb actors and fun. Just thought you would like to know. Truly a wonderful film. You will never guess who the 'murderer' is while watching this film....till the very end. What a superb plot and beautiful ice skating. One never sees that kind of performances any more. The Roxy Theater and the Center Theatres, in New York city, had ice skating performances on stage!
