Storyline

Par of the Warner Brothers Sports Parade series, this short film chronicles the attempt by a group of men to navigate the Colorado river through the Grand Canyon to Lake Mead. Led by Norman D. Nevills, 9 men undertake a 19 day trip in three specialty built rowboats through the more than 200 rapids, some of which run at 30 m.p.h. Along the way, they see the remnants of previous expeditions including wrecked boats and even a skeleton. They also visit now abandoned Pueblo Indian cave dwellings. Written by garykmcd

Great Short
26 February 2008 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Facing Your Danger (1946)

**** (out of 4)

Excellent short documenting the first group of men to take boats down the Colorado River, which was considered to have the worst rapids. The footage is pretty exciting to watch as are the very dangerous rapids. Oscar winner for Best Short.

Great all the way around.

As of writing this, the film has yet to be released on DVD but Turner Classic Movies show it every Feb. during their Oscar month. Right now that's the only way to see this.
