Storyline

In Oslo, Norway, Jenny (who loves stalwart Chris) enters a dance marathon to help her embezzler brother out of a jam; her actions cause misunderstanding and Chris flees to a far northern mining camp. In despair, Jenny signs up as a "picture bride" who by tragic irony is promised to Chris's brother Olaf...at that same mining camp. Then Chris's rival Alberto arrives on a polar dirigible expedition. Which brother will join his voyage, perhaps to doom? Very stylized. Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Trivia

Only the edited 1937 re-release, running 67 minutes, with the original 2-strip Technicolor finale in black and white, was available for many years. But a complete print, running 79 minutes and including the Technicolor finale, survived at the George Eastman House. In 2011, it was run on Turner Classic Movies. See more »

Actually Rather Disappointing
2 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sundered lovers meet again amid tragic irony at a mining camp in northern Norway.

I wanted to see this film because of the uncredited camera-work of Karl Freund, of whom I am a big fan. Although it is far too difficult to tell which work was his and which was not, and the overall film was rather blah. There is some impressive use of matte shots, but that does not thrill me.

I felt like there was too much singing and too much reliance on one character who was clearly supposed to be funny but was not. The overall story was okay, and maybe with a bit of updating it would be alright, but I just never felt like it was worth caring about anyone.
