The minor story involving a romance between Baker and Morison as a singer and ice-skating impresario was little more than Monogram's excuse to sink more than their usual measure of production dollars into this not-so-bad film built around various skating talents. Some good camera work

follows the skaters around the ice, and young Dare gets in three good routines. She had previously done a few skating pictures for producer Sol Lesser and shows her talents nicely in this film, as do Belita and champion Turner. The light musical numbers were tailored for Baker's tenor voice and

include: "Dancing on Top of the World," "Cowboy Joe," "Can't You Hear Me Calling from the Mountain," "Lovely Lady," "Love Is a Beautiful Song," "A Girl Like You--A Boy Like Me" (David Oppenheim, Roy Ingraham), "Sing a Song of the Sea" (Oppenheim, Archie Gottler).
