In the initial opening scene we see Jake Barnes flying his Super Cub south over glaciers and high rocky mountains, a feature only seen in the geography of South Alaska. When he checks in via radio, he confirms his location as being one in south-central Alaska. We then see him flying over a group of polar bears. Polar bears are only found along the northern coast of Alaska and Canada and on the Arctic Sea, not in the mountains of south Alaska (almost 1000 miles away). See more »

This film brings back memories from the first movie i watched, "Tundra" from 1936. It had the same elements: A post pilot crashing on the tundra, getting lost, finds a pal, a small bear who had lost track of its parents. It was a very touching story, and exiting. But thanks to Hollywood - it all worked out well in a happy ending!
When I now watch "ALASKA,it seems to be based on the same "TUNDRA".
I have not seen any referance to it in the credits, but hoped that someone out there who also have seen "TUNDRA" could help to solve my "mystery".
