The Million Dollar Legs- Sonja Henie

Three-time Olympic figure-skating champion, Sonja Henie, the Norwegian star of the Ice Follies, was known for her short temper. But with Aigner, she couldn’t have been more patient. He had a daring idea: to shoot her million-dollar legs in action close-ups, dramatized by artistic lighting. She skated into action and the focus of camera and lights – and, then, freezing a fraction of a second for a short-time exposure.
