This is a region-free DVD-R without case or artwork.

Skating star Sonja Henie and the Glenn Miller Orchestra share the spotlight in Sun Valley Serenade. Henie plays a Norwegian refugee adopted by band pianist John Payne, who mistakenly thought that the full-grown Miss Henie was a 10-year-old little girl. Payne's girlfriend, Lynn Bari, is a soloist with the Miller band, and also a violently jealous sort. When Bari quits Miller out of pique, Henie stages an elaborate ice show as a substitute. This impromptu spectacular thrills the audience at the Sun Valley resort hotel where most of the action takes place. Joan Davis and Milton Berle provide comic relief to the music and romance (you haven't lived until you've seen Berle on skis), while The Nicholas Brothers and Dorothy Dandridge perform a lively chorus of "Chattanooga Choo Choo."

5 of 5 The Nicholas Brothers Are Enough To Sell It October 21, 2019
Reviewer: Museum of Dave from Red Bluff, CA United States  
This is a wonderful clear, quality print of a hugely enjoyable Sonja Henie musical, likely one of two best, and that's because there's minimal dippy romance and a maximum of guest performers from Milton Berle to the inimitable Nicholas Brothers, likely the best hoofers in Hollywood, always only "guests" as black performers generally weren't allowed to star in mainstream musicals because of the Deep South market.  But there they are--and add plenty of Glenn Miller and the stunningly photographed skating of the star--it's wonderfully entertaining from start to finish!

5 of 5 Very watchable transfer July 23, 2018
Reviewer: Patrick Hunter from Panorama City, CA United States  
This fluff from Fox is a delight.   Glenn Miller and his band appeared in two feature films, and this is one of them, and more than one of his hits get the full treatment.

5 of 5 SUN VALLEY SERENADE March 24, 2014
Reviewer: JAMES MORRELLA from YONKERS, NY United States  
Forget about the story. All the performances are great. The Glen Miller Orchestra (with Tex Beneke) never better, Sonja Henie shows why she was the greatest skater (and beautiful) ever. Then we had the great Nicholas Brother acrobatic dancing & Dorothy Dandredge backing them up. Wonderful!
