Ice Skating films

Hey folks, I need some help from you expert movie watchers. With the release of Blades of Glory on Friday, Iím putting together a list of ice skating movies for some work I am doing. Any recommendations with films that center around this sport? Thanks in advance!

So far I have:

IMDB lists 172 films containing "ice skating" (this includes King Kong for example). Only 12 of those feature "Figure Skating" and only 20 of the superset feature "competition" so my guess is it will be tough to name more than two dozen titles truly about ice skating if you don't consider hockey.

She's pretty much forgotten today, but three-time Olympic ice skating gold medalist Sonja Henie starred in a series of films for Fox in the 30s and 40s. All of them featured ice skating production numbers ... kind of like the swimming themes of the Esther Williams films for MGM. Several of them look to be available on VHS, but I didn't see any DVDs. At one point IIRC she was Fox's highest-grossing female star.

Damn, beat me to it.

There are skating scenes in The Long Kiss Goodnight and Beautiful Girls. I also want to say Six Weeks but it has been too long since I have seen it.

Edit: There is a skating scene in Splash also.

Very comprehensive... but too comprehensive. Really, I don't think of Damien - Omen II or Jerry Maguire as ice skating movies.

I mean c'mon, would you call Tonya Hardings and Jeff Galooly's honeymoon video a skating movie because there's a skater in it?
