  • Description

    "Skates and Skaters of all sorts and sizes."

    M/S interior of an ice skating rink. Lots of people skate, some hold each other around the waist and skate in a chain. We briefly see a man in a clown or pierrot outfit skating.

    "It's bad enough for most of us to keep a perpendicular position on the ice - here's a couple who go much further. (Albert Enders and Sadie Cambridge)" M/S of the couple ice dancing. She wears a sparkly sequinned outfit - he wears a suit. Their display includes lifts and twirls.

    "And Sonja Henie herself, the personification of Skill on Skates." M/S of Sonja dancing in the ice. She wears a velvet skating outfit with matching hat. Short shot of the audience watching Sonja from a balcony. High angle shot of Sonja dancing. She performs figure of eights and other moves. The routine ends with some long spins.
