Slick comedy vehicle with cute songs
17 April 2001 | by duganekSee all my reviews

After the big success of "Keep Fit" in 1937, Basil Dean rushed its stars, George Formby and Kay Walsh into another topical vehicle, "I See Ice" which capitalized on the ice hockey craze then hitting England. While Cyril Richard may seem an odd choice for the romantic jock-villain, the film is fast-paced with lots of good slapstick and some lively songs. George Formby in top form if not in his top material, and Kay Walsh is delicious.
