Rhythm Hits The ice (1942)


Bernard Vorhaus    


Bradford Ropes (screenplay),  Gertrude Purcell (screenplay)  


Ellen DrewRichard DenningJerry Colonna
Republic's ongoing professional association with the celebrated "Ice-Capades" skating show yielded a number of flashy musicals, including 1942's Ice-Capades Revue, also know as Rhythm Hits The Ice. Though a plot is hardly necessary, the story concerns New England farm gal Ann (Ellen Drew), whose already-mounting debts are escalated when she inherits a near-bankrupt ice show. Her efforts to revivify this operation are regularly thwarted by a conniving promoter named Duke Baldwin (Harold Huber), who has already tied up all the best arenas for his own skating spectacular. But Baldwin's second-in-command Jeff (Richard Denning) falls in love with Ann and vows to see to it that her show will be staged, come heck or high water. Jerry Colonna goes through his customary zaniness as an eccentric would-be backer who turns out to be a phony, while Barbara Jo Allen again trots out her dizzy "Vera Vague" characterization. Foremost among the skating acts is Vera Hruba Ralston, who'd later be elevated to leading-lady status at Republic by her ardent admirer (and future husband), studio president Herbert J. Yates.

    It's OK. Nothing to write home about, but skating scenes are quite good.
