One of the greatest athletes of all times and a pioneer of modern figure skating, Sonja Henie lit up the ice rink and the silver screen with equal flair. The lithe 5-foot-1-inch blonde Norwegian spitfire was already a decorated Olympic champion by the time she headed for Hollywood in 1936, where she became one of its highest paid stars after being signed with Twentieth Century Fox. The following year, her films were box office champions worldwide.

Director Anne Sewitky’s sparkling biopic Sonja: The White Swan, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, tells the story of the ice queen’s meteoritic rise in the sport and Hollywood, going behind the scenes of her smash hits, her glamorous lifestyle, and her struggles in the spotlight as her star began to fade. Never a quitter, the brash mogul forged a dizzying legacy that endures today.

Sonja Henie was ambitious, glamorous, and iconic. Here are more women stars from Hollywood’s past that remain unforgettable today.
