It's a Pleasure was the third release from International Pictures, the feisty independent that would later merge with Universal. Skating sensation Sonja Henie does her usual as ice-show star Chris Linden, who falls in love with hockey champ Don Martin (Michael O'Shea). A combative, troublesome sort, Martin is barred from hockey for life thanks to his numerous brawls and drinking binges. Meanwhile, Chris rises ever higher in her chosen profession, driving a wedge between herself and Martin. Since there was never a Sonja Henie picture with an unhappy ending, audiences were assured that things would aright themselves shortly after the climactic music-and-ice ensemble number.
