The Two Sonja`s - Henie & Wigert

Author Iselin Theien told me that in the early 40s, the Cole Porter "Night and Day" was played whenever Sonja Wigert entered the restaurant at the Grand Hotel in Sweden - it was played in her honour....

And who better to sing and dance it - than the Chairman of the Board and our own Sonja Henie.

Terboven and Anders Jahre both sought Miss Wigert, but she declined both offers.... Sture Lagerwall however was a dear co-star...

Cesar Romero starred with the other Sonja in three films; "Happy Landing", "My Lucky Star"(both 1938) and "Wintertime" 1942. This is from the latter. Enjoy:-)
