It's a Pleasure Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

It's a Pleasure was the third release from International Pictures, the feisty independent that would later merge with Universal. Skating sensation [[Performer~P31764~Sonja Henie~sonjahenie]] does her usual as ice-show star Chris Linden, who falls in love with hockey champ Don Martin ([[Performer~P53655~Michael O'Shea~michaeloshea]]). A combative, troublesome sort, Martin is barred from hockey for life thanks to his numerous brawls and drinking binges. Meanwhile, Chris rises ever higher in her chosen profession, driving a wedge between herself and Martin. Since there was never a [[Performer~P31764~Sonja Henie~sonjahenie]] picture with an unhappy ending, audiences were assured that things would aright themselves shortly after the climactic music-and-ice ensemble number. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
