'The White Hell of Pitz Palu'

Why: 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, 911 Pine St, 292-2787. 7 pm, $12.)
