Goofs

When Kroomak and Henderson meet, Henderson's pipe is in his mouth when Kroomak says, "You'll stay with me. I want nothing to happen to you." In the subsequent shot, Henderson's pipe is suddenly gone. Then we return to the two-shot and the pipe is suddenly back again - and Henderson is suddenly re-lighting it. See more »

How often do you get to travel to the arctic and live with the indigenous people there who have been living pretty nearly the life of their distant and technologically primitive ancestors? Excellent cinematography, excellent musical score. Very enjoyable experience.
