Story revolves about a Norwegian refugee and his daughter (Sonja Henie), whose destination is the Chateau Frontenac, Quebec. Jack Oakie, who, in partnership with Cornel Wilde, operates a small, shabby hostelry called the Chateau Promenade, detours the party to his own place in order to build trade through the presence of the distinguished refugees.
Romantic interest is woven in via the familiar triangle motif, with Henie chasing Wilde who temporarily devotes himself to a gal, representing a sports magazine with large circulation, in order to grab space for his hotel. Cesar Romero, as a frivolous Casanova, loses out, following a slapstick bit where he runs through the hotel in long underwear.
Henie’s blade sequences, solo and with a partner, enhanced by gorgeous settings, are socko as always.
