In the Ice Island weather station hut airmen held a normal flashlight but outside the hut the flashlight suddenly changed to a small studio lighting instrument. The safety rope the airmen used was actually the power cord for the light. See more »
Apparently this isn't easy to find. The new Sony/MGM digital broadcast network dug it out of their vaults and aired it several times recently.
I saw one of those broadcasts, and found ti to be mostly an interesting adventure film whenever the main plot device of a weather tracking expedition to nearby the North Pole is involved, and the rescue of the Air Force men who end up stranded there.
It was much less interesting when dealing with the melodramatic subplot of the two major officers and their girls, and who would get which girl. That part was pretty unappealing and, in terms of being realistic, quite obtuse. It seemed added on to the major plot in order to bring ladies into the theater. Ladies of the 1950s that is, not modern girls.
Still the adventure aspect is fun, and especially the rescue of the last man on the crumbling ice island.
