The Fabulous Ice Age
Keri Pickett, 2013
USA | 73 minutes

New York Premiere!

Director Keri Pickett and figure skaters Roy Blakey (“Uncle Roy”) and Richard “Mr. Debonair” Dwyer in person!

The exciting journey begins in 1915 when a young German skater ignites America’s love with dancing on ice. The Fabulous Ice Age chronicles a century of theatrical skating, from Berlin’s Charlotte, to America’s Ice Follies, Ice Capades, Holiday on Ice, and the Sonja Henie shows, illustrating how these big spectaculars dominated live entertainment for decades while simultaneously depicting one particular skater's quest to share this history. Never before seen footage, photos and rare archival material introduce us to a handful of skaters, producers and entrepreneurs who helped change their world.
