Hell Below Zero

Film, Action and adventure

Time Out says

Columbia sent their British operation a name star and a safe pair of directorial hands for this outdoor adventure from Hammond Innes' pageturner The White South. When Tetzel learns of her father's supposed suicide leap from the bow of a company whaling ship, she leaves London for the Antarctic, meeting-cute with adventurer Ladd on the flight to Cape Town. The stirrings of romance draw him into her plight, prompting fisticuffs, harpoon action and an ice floe set-to on the way to a predictable resolution. This time-passer is mainly notable for extensive and decidedly eco-unfriendly location footage of the Antarctic whaling fleet bringing in their massive catch.
