Description:

Quarto. 68pp (text), 64pp (plates). Original photographic stiff boards, with white and green lettering on front cover. "S.O.S. Eisberg" documents the 1933 expedition in Northwest-Greenland, for the filming of the German-US drama film of the same name directed by Arnold Fanck and starring Gustav Diessl, Leni Riefenstahl, Sepp Rist, Gibson Gowland, Rod La Roque, and Ernst Udet, the second-highest scoring German flying ace of WWI. In the same year that she directed "Sieg des Glaubens" (English: Victory of Faith) (1933), her first of several famous cinematic projects for the Nazi Party, German actress and filmmaker Leni Riefenstahl played a supporting role in this epic adventure, co-written and co-directed by her frequent "mountain film" collaborator Dr. Arnold Fanck. Rod La Rocque stars as Dr. Carl Lawrence, leader of a mission to Greenland to recover the lost records of the ill-fated, real-life Alfred Lothar Wegener polar expedition of 1929-30. Lawrence's party includes experienced explorer/guides, as well as an adventure-seeking financier, who is in over his head and slowly driven mad by the perils of the voyage. When Lawrence's band is trapped on an iceberg, Lawrence's wife Ellen (Leni Riefenstahl) - a famous female pilot fashioned after Amelia Earhart - takes off on a rescue mission, but she crashes her aircraft upon landing and is stranded along with the others. Before total disaster claims the Lawrence party, however, native eskimos and Major Ernst Udet (playing himself) arrive via kayak to save the day. Two surviving members of the Wegener party served as advisors for this well-received Man vs. Nature treatise, filmed on location in Greenland, Iceland, and in the Bernina Alps, on the border between Italy and Switzerland. It was filmed simultaneously in German and English, and released by Universal Studios in both Germany and the United States. The film premiered on August 30, 1933 in Berlin. Among its stars were Leni Riefenstahl, who had just made her directorial debut in "Das blaue Licht" (The Blue Light) (1932), and would go on to direct "Triumph des Willens" (Triumph of the Will) (1934), "Olympia" (1938), and "Tiefland" (1954). Riefenstahl co-starred with Gustav Diessl and Ernst Udet in the German version "S.O.S. Eisberg," and with Gibson Gowland and Rod La Rocque in the English version "S.O.S. Iceberg." This volume is profusely illustrated with captioned photogravures depicting striking landscapes, movie scenes, as well as snapshots of what went on behind the scenes. Interestingly, the film was financed by Hollywood film pioneer and founder of Universal Studios, Carl Laemmle. Wear to corners and parts of edges on binding. Sunning and some staining on rear board. Slight water staining on small area of margin on free front endpaper. Small stamp of previous owner on same leaf. Slight foxing on inside of front and rear cover. Text in German, gothic script. Binding in overall good-, interior in very good condition. Bookseller Inventory #
