My Lucky Star was another enjoyable Sonja Henie vehicle depite a more ridiculous plot than previous Henie movies
Having just seen two of Sonja Henie's previous movies-One in a Million and Thin Ice-before this one, this particular one has a more daffy plot than those others though the performances are good enough, one forgives the unbelievability of it all. Ms. Henie is, as always, good during skating numbers with one good uptempo one to balance her more classical ones as well as another fascinating one based on "Alice in Wonderland". Her leading man here is Richard Greene who I never heard or seen before. Among Ms. Henie's returning supporting players from her previous films are Cesar Romero, Arthur Treacher, Billy Gilbert, and Joan Davis, the latter two especially welcome. Loved both Gilbert's trying to add pistachio nuts to Greene's order and Ms. Davis' pratfalls and funny way with her arm movements. Also amusing was Buddy Ebsen as Ms. Davis' boyfriend. Together, they make a pretty good team. In summary, My Lucky Star was another pretty enjoyable Sonja Henie vehicle.
