Igloo is a 1932 Pre-Code documentary film released by Universal Studios.[2]


In February 1931, Edward Small sent an expedition to the Arctic headed by Ewing Scott with Roy Klaffki as a cameraman to make a film. They were accompanied by Ray Wise, a full-blooded Eskimo and shot for six months. They went missing for 32 days off Icy Cape, Alaska and were rescued by some whalers.[3][4] They returned with 100,000 feet of film.[5]
