A realistic, gripping drama that has La Rocque searching for the records of the lost Alfred Lothar Wegener expedition to Greenland. La Rocque is joined on the perilous journey by three experienced explorers and a financial backer who has gone along for the "adventure." This film was

praised for its authenticity in its use of the Greenland landscape, and the scene where the group is trapped on an iceberg illustrates that point. The financial backer is driven mad by the dangers and wants to stay back, but La Rocque keeps pushing on. His wife, Riefenstahl, is a noted flier and

goes after them, but ends up crashing the plane and becoming marooned with the others. As members of the group slowly start to die, they are rescued by Major Udet and a group of kayaking Eskimoes. When making this picture, Universal called on the advice of Knud Rasmussen, considered to be the

expert on the polar regions, as well as two members of the actual, ill-fated Wegener expedition of 1929-30.
