Light romance in the Antarctic. Nice Robert Morse vehicle.
3 December 2001 | by (San Jose, California) – See all my reviews

Robert Morse excelled in light, romantic musical and comedy roles back in the '60s and '70s. This movie, taken from a book by the same name, is cute, mostly fun to watch, and has Anjanette Comer. If you are familiar with Anjanette Comer back in this era, then you can enjoy this movie even more. Basic plot is that a non-too-successful newspaper reporter is sent to the Antarctic (South Pole in case you are trying to imagine a map) to see if he can dig up a story about anything, especially Communists and plots against the free world. What he finds is a romance while trying to get down there (he is already married) and a bunch of bored scientists and military personnel once he gets there. George Maharis, as the girl-chasing photographer, and Michael Constantine, as the only Russian Morse can even find, are good in their roles. There is nothing that isn't just a shade predictable here, but the movie was directed by Delbert Mann (several Doris Day movies, A Gathering of Eagles, All Quiet on the Western Front-the one with John-Boy-and Night Crossing) who can spin an enjoyable tale. I only wish it were shown on TV or available on video.
