Henie, Sonja

Posted in WB Cartoon Companion on March 22, 2004


    Olympic figure skating champion of 1928, 1932, and 1936 who enjoyed a brief film career in the late 30s, usually in films with skating routines surrounded by not much in the way of plot. She can be seen dancing with Tyrone Power in Hollywood Steps Out (Avery, 1941). The long skating routine in Land of the Midnight Fun (Avery, 1939) is basically a Henie routine. The sequence is rotoscoped, but whether from Henie herself is uncertain.
