During the last skating sequence the ice was dyed black to add drama to the segment. The ice showed skate marks badly so it was covered with a layer of liquid dye to hide the marks. This can be seen by the splashing in fast turns. Near the end the liquid is starting to freeze and skate marks are visible. See more »

Caught this one on AMC before it went commercial. What a warm, family film. While I have never seen another Sonje Henie movie, I found her to be irresistible. It was also great to see John Payne playing the light comedic leading man. Of course, the music of Glenn Miller would be the highlight of any movie. The version of I Know Why (and So Do You) contained in the film is quite different from the versions you hear on Glenn Miller compilations and in my opinion is much better. (This version is also the one used in the 90's film Memphis Belle). Add great skating sequences, musical interludes, and wonderful locations and you have a fun-filled way to spend an afternoon.
