In 1999, renowned American mountaineer Conrad Anker made a discovery that reverberated around the globe. High in Mount Everest's "death zone," he found the body of George Mallory - 75 years after the British explorer mysteriously vanished during his attempt to become the first man to summit the world's tallest peak.
Mallory had risked everything as he set out, dressed in gabardine and hobnailed boots, in pursuit of his dream of reaching the top of Everest - which in 1924 was the last great adventure left to man. He was last spotted alive just 800 feet below the summit. Then the clouds rolled in and Mallory vanished into legend.
After discovering Mallory's body, Conrad Anker's life became intertwined with Mallory's story. Remarkably, Mallory's body was found with all his belongings intact. The only thing missing was a photograph of his wife, Ruth, which Mallory had promised to place on the summit. Haunted by Mallory's story, Conrad longed to return to Everest to lay Mallory's ghost to rest.
BONUS FEATURES INCLUDE Behind the Scenes Raw Interviews, International Trailers, Original Notes from Mallory's Expedition Team Member, Noel Odell, and more.
Everest and this movie was very interesting and very well done.
While the general story, particularly the history of Mallory's own expedition and motives is interesting, but this film doesn't put as much weight on Mallory's climb.
This documentary details the life and accomplishments of George Leigh Mallory, specifically his dream and obsession with Everest.
I just finished a book about Mallory. The movie was a very good depiction of Mallory's attempts; especially of the most difficult final ascent.Published 1 month ago by Fred
