'The White Hell of Pitz Palu'
The awesome title should be enough to induce anyone to see this film, presented at the Paramount with organ accompaniment
by Dennis James. But should you need more: It's a fine example of the Weimar-era genre of Bergfilme
, or "mountain films" (recently resuscitated in movies like Touching the Void
), and it stars the dancer Leni Riefenstahl
, before she became a director and a Nazi and a genius (unfortunately all at once). (Paramount Theatre
