Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

She had a fine figure for figure skating.


Sonja Henie (1912-1969) was the daughter of a wealthy Norwegian family, whose parents encouraged their children to take up sports. When Sonja turned out to be gifted at skating, her parents got her the best tutors, which definitely paid off.

She won championship after championship, including three Olympic gold medals. Then she went on to a hugely successful career in films and live shows.

Her films were such hits, ~20th Century Fox~, her old studio tried to replicate the success with Carol Heiss in Snow White and The Three Stooges, but those filmmakers had evidently not realized what made Sonja's films work.


Films:

  • Happy Landing
  • Iceland
  • Its A Pleasure
  • My Lucky Star
  • One In A Million
  • Sun Vally Serenade
  • Thin Ice
