Everest 1933

The original record of the 1933 Everest expedition, re-edited and commentated by the leader, Hugh Ruttledge. The approach through Darjeeling and Tibet, ascent of the East Rongbuk Glacier and the camps on Everest itself are shown; individual highlights include F. S. Smythe cutting steps in a nearly-vertical ice wall and many impressive views of the summit as seen from the North Col. Stages in the journey are shown by animated relief maps. Although the photography shows sighs of the arduous conditions under which the cameras had to be used, this is recommended to any audience with an interest in mountains. Mr. Ruttledge's commentary adds much to the value of the film as a historical document.
