An extremely rare film by G.W. Pabst made at the end of the silent era, and a unique obsession with the German obsession during the 20's with idealized mountain films that "were both brilliant documentaries and first-rate melodramas, with very definite if embryonic propaganda content. They were the inspiration and largely the monopoly of Dr. Arnold Fanck, a former geologist who translated his great passion for the mountains into film.The White Hell of Pitz Palu was the last of the great silent German mountain films, and one of the best and most successful. Most of the film was shot under freezing conditions and other hardships during a five-month location trip to the 12,000 foot high Pitz Palu, in the Bernina group of the Alps" (William Everson). Complete with alternate ending. Silent with English titles. At 24 fps.
