Silver Skates was designed to showcase Monogram's latest discovery, ice-skating star Belita. The minimalist plot concerns the romance between Danny (Kenny Baker), featured vocalist for Belita's skating revue, and Claire (Patricia Morrison), the debt-ridden owner of the show. Comedy relief is provided by Joyce Compton and Frank Faylen as Lucille and Eddie, whose foredoomed moneymaking schemes punctuate the action from time to time. Among the skating stars featured throughout the film are little Irene Dare and the legendary Frick & Frack. Silver Skates proved profitable for Monogram, though Belita was no threat to the predominance of 20th Century-Fox's Sonja Henie.
