The fine score from Irving Berlin includes "I've got my love to keep me warm" and the equally good but not so well known "Last years kisses".
SECOND FIDDLE (Black and White 1939) - More like a romantic comedy than a musical as the dance routines take place on the ice rink, changing the emphasis from spectacle to grace.
Tyrone Power works hard maintaining dramatic momentum ably supported by Edna May Oliver in one of her aunt roles. Sonja Henie was almost entirely an ice champion and pretty face (1930s style), fortunately her acting input is small.
Good singing in adequate Irving Berlin songs from Rudy Vallee and Mary Healy, especially the memorable opening set for "An Old Fashioned Tune".
SUN VALLEY SERENADE (Black and White 1941) - Director Bruce Humberson whisks up a delightful soufflé with a very deft hand.
During the early days of WWII an orchestra sponsors a refugee, Sonja Henie, only to find she is a beautiful and wilfully mischievous (surely not scheming) young woman who sets her sights on the pianist, John Payne who already has a girlfriend, Lyn Bari the band's singer.
This time Henie is ideal in her role and abandons her skates for skis for a great part of the fun, also plenty of wonderful music from Glen Miller playing himself, his band vocalists and Lynn Bari.
ORCHESTA WIVES (Black and White 1942) - The second of two films featuring the Glen Miller Orchestra.Read more ›
