A late 40s expedition to the Antarctic is chronicled by military photographers. Just getting there proves treacherous, with a submarine and several ships imperiled by the ice floes. Eventually they make base on the continent and carry out a wide variety of scientifically exciting, but cinematically boring, experiments. Narrated by Hollywood stars Robert Montgomery, Robert Taylor and Van Heflin, all veterans.
