A Musical Ice-TravaganzaGorgeous gold medalist Sonja Henie stars in this charming 1948 romantic comedy and ice-skating extravaganza in which bit-part actresses Karen Kirsten (Henie) and Jenny Johnson (Olga San Juan) go AWOL from a production, costumes and all, and pretend to be nobility. Karen assumes the identity of a countess and Jenny plays her maid. The counterfeit countess meets a handsome count disguised as a commoner. He also happens to sing and ice skate like a pro, and as the two of them make beautiful figure-8s together, romance blossoms. No two skaters ever looked so good, but comic misunderstandings and turnabouts plague the pair as they try to get closer to each other.
An easy-on-the-eye, black-and-white movie, The Countess of Monte Cristo delivers 76 minutes of enchanting love story and world-class ice-skating. Arthur Treacher, Hugh French, and Dorothy Hart also appear. Songs include "The Friendly Polka," "Count Your Blessings," and "Who Believes in Santa Claus."
