White Hell Of Pitz Palu

White goddess Leni Riefenstahl, who later directed such ideological entertainments as Triumph of the Will, starred in this silent 1929 mountain-climbing epic, codirected by the great G.W. Pabst and the more modestly pictorial mountain film specialist Dr. Arnold Fanck. It’s reputed to be one of her best early efforts as an athletic actress. 150 min. (JR)
