Honorable Mention: Scott of the Antarctic (1949)

Scott of the Antarctic (1949)

This surprisingly little-heard-of movie portrays Robert Falcon Scott's fateful 1912 expedition to the South Pole. Music by Vaughn Williams and the haunting scenes re-created using photographs taken by Herbert George Ponting, a member of the expedition, make this movie memorable. Bravery and endurance are the main themes as the doomed men struggle against the ice and cold. The popularity of Ernest Shackleton's expedition may bring more viewers to this fine film.
