I expected this film to look all washed out & flickery like the silent movies from 1924 that I have seen on TV. Wow! Anything but! Very high quality. It is awesome, remarkable, fascinating, amazing. Also heartbreaking & chilling as we watch Mallory & Ervine go off to meet their doom & watch the signal from the rescue party indicating that they were unsuccessful. I’m so glad the Library has a copy of this 94 year old film. Thank you Pickerington for letting me borrow it!

This is a restored version of the original documentary, filmed by expedition member John Noel. It follows the British expedition to Everest in 1924, gives us a look at life in the area at the time, and tells the tale of the disappearance of Mallory and Irvine. The cinematography, for footage that's over ninety years old, is stunning.
