The Epic of Everest - Beautiful restored film



The Epic of Everest - Beautiful restored film

I have just seen the complete film, which has been magnificently restored by Bfi, with very appropriate music.

The restored film is being shown at a Gala performance on Friday, 18 October in Leicester Square.  It is a full account of the journey in 1924,showing the members of the expedition, the trials and tribulations and, finally, the tragedy of Mallory's and Irvine's disappearance in June 1924, and Odell's valient effort to find them.

This film is now almost 90 years old;  filming was not easy, and it is a tribute to my father that it has survived so long.  Now it has been lovingly restored, with wonderful music by Simon Fisher Turner, which truly captures the harsh conditions of that epic climb.
