At the Paramount and Fenway

"Wintertime" is typical Sonja Henie fare. It has a plot--a Norweglan skater attempts to save the fortunes of a bankrupt winter resort; it has a romance--she falls in love in the process. Sonja Henie performs excellently on ice and produces pout and dimple effects off of ice.

Jack Oakie and Cezar Romero try desperately to be funny but don't get far. Their nearest approach was a series of scenes in which Romero, clad sedately in a set of long woolen drawers, gallops madly through the hotel. Not especially subtle, but the audience appeared to be amused.
