Scott of the Antarctic ★★½ 1948

Drama of doomed British expedition of 1911 struggling to be the first group to reach the South Pole. Much of the stunning location filming was shot in the Swiss Alps. Story is authentic, but oddly uninvolving, as though seen from afar. 111m/C VHS, DVD . GB John Mills, Christopher Lee, Kenneth More, Derek Bond; D: Charles Frend; C: Geoffrey Unsworth.
