Shown through Houston IKEA’s Silver Screen series, It’s a Pleasure (1945), Henie’s first film in luxuriant Technicolor, was made by short-lived indie company International Pictures. Basically, it’s an ice-inspired A Star Is Born, in which skater Sonja rises, while her hubby, a former hockey pro played by Michael O’Shea, drinks more and more. The ending is happy, though, as is the scrumptious lensing by ace cameraman Ray Rennahan and those mad nightclub settings from famed art director Wiard Ihnen, fresh from his Academy Award-winning job on Wilson. 6:30 p.m. Discovery Green, 1500 McKinney.
