Everything Happens at Night ★★★ 1939

Rival reporters Milland and Cummings are torn between the woman they love and the story of a lifetime. One of Henie's best romantic skating vehicles due to the strong performances by the leading men. Henie does take to the ice for a couple of numbers, but this film was largely designed to expand her image as a serious actress. Although it failed to do that, it's good entertainment nonetheless. 76m/B VHS . Sonja Henie, Ray Milland, Robert Cummings, Maurice (Moscovitch) Moscovich, Leonid Kinskey, Alan Dinehart, Fritz Feld; D: Irving Cummings; W: Art Arthur, Robert Harari; C: Edward Cronjager; M: Cyril Mockridge.
