  • Dr. Arnold Fanck expands upon the real-life story of explorer Alfred Lothar Wegener, whose polar expedition of 1929 ended in disaster; two of the survivors of that trek served as advisors on the film. The fictional Karl Lorenz (Gustav Diessel) is on a mission to find out what happened to Wegener, and to save any members of his team who may still be alive. Lorenz becomes stranded on a slowly-diminishing iceberg, menaced by polar bears and in grave danger. His wife, Ellen (Leni Riefenstahl), a famous pilot, arrives to save the day, but crash-lands and is stranded along with everyone else. Luckily, a group of Eskimos and Major Ernst Udet (playing himself) arrive in kayaks. S.O.S. ICEBERG was filmed in the same year as Riefenstahl's VICTORY OF THE FAITH, the first of the films she made for the Nazi party.
