    Shots of Spitsbergen, Norway, at the time of attempts to rescue the crew of the lost Polar Airship 'Italia'.

  • Description

    Full titles read: "Epic of the Frozen North. - Pathe Cameraman secures first and exclusive pictures of gallant rescue attempts... by sea and air... to find lost Cdr. Nobile and crew of Polar Airship "Italia"."

    Spitzbergen (Spitsbergen), Norway.

    L/Ss panning across a small settlement of houses by the sea; the ground is covered with snow, snow-covered mountains are seen in the background.

    Note: there seems to be a large amount of footage missing from this story; paperwork suggests there was footage of Captain Larsen and Major Maddelena on rescue missions. See separate record in this issue for cuts which may have originally belonged to this story.
