Note
  • Originally produced in 1922
  • Crude and primitive as the conditions under which it was made. This direct study of Eskimo life set the standard for and has remained the most famous of the early documentary films. The Walrus hunt scene is especially effective.--Container
  • Silent, with musical accompaniment
