The movie's source novelist Donald G. Payne (as Ian Cameron) wrote a similarly titled novel "The Mountains at the Bottom of the World" which was first published around the same time that this picture first launched in December 1974. See more »
The actors playing Vikings speak a mix of modern Scandinavian languages. Modern Icelandic would have been closer to the authentic tongue. See more »
This was the first film that I saw in the theater as a kid, and I have never forgotten it. David Hartman instantly became my favorite actor, and I was hooked on movies forever! This is the kind of movie that fills our dreams and satisfies the wanderlusterer in all of us. The high adventure, and colorful cinematography in this movie is what makes a great film. I've purchased the movie recently and am able to relive the wonder of Arctic travel once more. Its truly a trip back to my childhood when all things were simpler and adventure waited around every turn.
