Leni Riefenstahl describes working in the beginning of her career, 1920's and
early 30's, with director Arnold Fanck on what were called mountain films.
Fanck loved stories about man at risk in nature. Everyone was expected to
carry the equipment and tough it out. They all climbed real mountains and
shot on glaciers, etc. See "White Hell of Piz Palu" and ask yourself if SAG
would let even a starlet do it!
We have the hour documentary where LR talks about her winter experiences, and
in fact her whole life-- up to 1975.
$49.95 plus $5 shipping.
