Gripping drama based on James Houston's bestseller relates the true story of a trio of whalers who were separated from their ship in the Canadian Arctic. Saved from certain death by a tribe of Inuit Eskimos, the sailors introduced such Western traditions as boozing, theft, and lechery to their hosts. But when cultural conflicts arose, the stage was set for a dramatic confrontation. Warren Oates, Timothy Bottoms, Lou Gossett star. 109 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English.
