Eskimo (1933)




I saw this film last night on TCM based on a story by Danish explorer Peter Freuchen. Its beauty astounded me. The protagonist Mala was a real Eskimo who performed his own stunts including a real wolf fight. It took several years to make. The hunting scenes were real hunts of walruses, caribou, polar bear, and whales. The language is Inuit with English subtitles.

This is the first film to ever win an Academy Award for Editing (1934 was the first year when an Oscar for Editing was introduced.)
