Did You Know?


This was Sonja Henie's final Hollywood feature. Of her 11 vehicles issued between 1936 and 1948, only this film missed out on a review in The New York Times. Miss Henie would return to the screen one last time in a British production shot in color and CinemaScope, London Calling (1958), which was not released in the United States. Sonja's home studio for nine pictures between 1936 and 1943, Twentieth Century-Fox, handled the English distribution of her film finale. See more »
