Storyline

Claire (Patricia Morison), owner of an ice-show, faces bankruptcy because Belita (Belita), star of the show, is about to leave and marry her sweetheart Tom (Henry Wadsworth). Danny (Kenny Baker), singer with the show, and Claire are in love but Claire refuses to wed until she can get the show back on its feet. Katrina (Irene Dare), 10-year-old orphaned refugee from Holland, comes to the show looking for her uncle, now in the service. Claire wants to adopt the girl but has to be married, so she decides to accept Danny's proposal. He, however, has been making a play for Belita, hoping to keep her with the show. Belita quarrels with her fiancee and Danny soon, and unintentionally, finds himself engaged to both Claire and Belita. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Bland
2 June 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A load of bland blokes take up lots of screen time along with an annoying boy and an annoying girl who do some skating. The only reason to watch this film is for Belita. She stars as herself in a film about a company trying to keep onto her as their star attraction for their show. She skates and looks good as always but I wish she had been given a better story.

If you like skating, Eugene Turner also turns up as himself and partners Belita on the ice. We have some songs thrown in – not particularly memorable but OK – and we also have the required morale-boosting ending about the Navy where everyone gets to wear a navy Captain's hat. Cool.
