Scott of the Antarctic was Ealing’s first technicolour film and a great achievement, as it was shot almost entirely in studio, which most people never realised thanks to the special effects team and legendary cinematographer Jack Cardiff OBE.
Scott of the Antarctic was adapted from Robert Falcon Scott’s diaries and visually inspired by original footage from the expedition. Tremendously British in style and spirit, this documentary-style drama is complemented by an original score from Ralph Vaughan Williams, which later became his seventh symphony, ‘Sinfonia Antarctica.’ Scott of the Antarctic was nominated for Best British Film at the BAFTAs in 1949.
It has been beautifully restored in 2K, and for the first time ever from a Technicolor 3 strip negative.
