Historical film of climbing on Everest,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Epic of Everest (DVD + Blu-ray) (Blu-ray)
If you are interested in the early attempts to climb Everest then this film is worth watching, if only to be able to actually see film footage of some of the people who we normally only read about. I watched it after reading the book Into The Silence by Wade Davis, which tells the stories of the early Everest expeditions and gives background details on many of the characters who took part in these early climbs. The film is ninety years old and has been restored well, I was hoping to have had more footage of the actual climbing so I was a bit disappointed by the film.
