Synopsis / Plot
This Disney "True-Life Adventure" was filmed on location in the Arctic. Covering the period from the Spring thaw to the winter freeze, the film offers rare and fascinating glimpses of polar bears, walruses, wolves, caribou and ermine. The "suicidal" migration of the lemmings is covered, as is a harrowing life-or-death situation involving a wolverine and a rabbit. According to Disney's publicity machine, White Wilderness was three years in the making, requiring a team of nine cameramen. For its original release, the film was paired with the appropriately wintry Donald Duck cartoon Donald's Snow Fight (1942).
1958: Oscar: Best Documentary. Nom. for Best Soundtrack (Drama / Comedy)
1959: BAFTA Awards: Nominated to Best Documentary
