Editorial Reviews

Alaska: America's last great wilderness frontier. A land of primitive grandeur, of glaciers, mountains and ice-fields. And of ambitious cannery tycoon Zeb "Czar" Kennedy (Richard Burton) and rugged activist leader Thor Storm (Robert Ryan), two rough-hewn men whose bitter 40-year rivalry mirrored their powerful land's struggle for statehood.

No one captured untamed lands, passions and rising empires better than Cimarron, Giant and So Big novelist Edna Ferber. Under veteran Vincent Sherman's vigorous direction, Ice Palace is a king-sized saga in that mold, a generations-spanning clash of wills, greed and family honor set against a new land's coming of age. Carolyn Jones and Martha Hyer co-star as the women caught in the war between the two battling titans. Stake your claim to epic entertainment.

I have been looking for a tape of this movie for several years, and now that I have found it, I am overjoyed. I had seen it many times on TV in the past but it has not surfaced there for many years. I think all of the actors and actresses are superb in their roles. No need to say anything else but excellent for Burton, Ryan & Jones, who left us so early in life. I admired the way the story was sprawled out in every aspect, from personal joys & sorrows and the way the all of future family members were woven into the drama to the very end. I especially enjoy a leanthy story when it holds my interest to the very end, which this movie did; even the supporting cast held my interest because of their fine performances. I'm looking forward to finally receiving this favorite.

This is essentially the story line of "Giant" set in Alaska as it approaches statehood. Richard Burton stars as a chip on the shoulder, poor guy who rises to great riches. He enters into conflict with his benefactor and a multi-generational struggle ensues which plays out around the drama of Alaska's statehood.

If only this was on DVD, but we can't have everything. Great story and better than fair acting. When it comes out on DVD I'll be buying it again, if only for the scenery.

This is a wonderful movie, great cast, photography along with a little history lesson. The only thing I didn't like about it was that it wasn't long enough and left me wanting more. This is a good clean movie and I highly recommend it to all.

I have been looking for this movie for years and years! My mother and I used to watch it on the late, late show on channel 4 in St. Louis MO in the early 60's and it was such a great movie to watch. Well, to tell you the truth I was so young watching the movie with my mother, I could only remember Carolyn Jones because of her beautiful eyes. I went to ask.com and asked about the movie with Carolyn Jones located in Alaska and lo and behold up popped the title, "The Ice Palace." I immediately ordered it on Amazon and they shipped it soooo quickly. I was so excited to watch this movie again. It is a great movie.

This movie is a real classic and very true to the Edna Ferber novel of the same name. While Richard Burton always acts as though he is in a Shakespearian tragedy, the movie, on the whole, is well done and in amazing condition considering when it was made. Alaska has always fascinated me and that is an added attraction of the film. I've been there many times - it is a vast and unforgiving place which this movie illustrates quite well.

I wanted this movie ( available only on VHS tape ) because the owner had made a personal backup DVD copy, and I wanted to have a DVD of the movie. I watched this years ago as a kid with my Mom on New Years Eve, and we had her over and watched it with her. Great memory of this epic old movie.
