Beyond the Edge Lowest new price: $17.12
Lowest used price: $7.99
List price: $24.98
Brand: Unknown
Model: 29859414

In 1953, the ascent of Everest remained the last of Earth s great challenges. Standing at over 29,000ft, the world s highest mountain posed a fearsome challenge and had already claimed thirteen lives in previous expeditions. When Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay finally achieved the impossible and became the first men to stand atop Everest, it was an event that stunned the world and defined an era.

Facing treacherous winds, sub-zero temperatures and battling altitude sickness, Sir Edmund s incredible achievement remains one of the greatest adventure stories of all time; the epic journey of a man from modest beginnings who overcame adversity to reach the highest point on Earth. For the first time ever, and with the support of the Hillary family, Sir Edmund s story is brought to life using both original color footage and photographs and dramatized recreations of the stunning assault. Both a classic triumph of the underdog story and a gripping, cinematic experience, BEYOND THE EDGE is a tale of human endurance, tenacity and courage in the face of overwhelming odds.

Bannister: Everest on the Track

Bannister: Everest on the Track Lowest new price: $5.96
Lowest used price: $6.94
List price: $7.97
Model: 35302444

History wonks and running buffs will vie for who loves this movie the most. Everest on the Track is as much an historical study of Britain's psychological, if not almost physical, need for something - anything - to erase the woes of World War II as it is a fresh look at the quest for the first sub-4:00 mile, the heretofore deemed physically impossible. Before the war, Britain had bloomed best in its Sporting Tradition, but the amateur accolades leading to Olympic accomplishments were blown off the podiums in the 1952 Helsinki Games. Roger Bannister was the epitome of that disappearing scholar-athlete ideal. Can the lunchtime-trained runner immersed in his medical school studies inject the booster shot into Britain's flagging but still flickering morale?

Epic of Everest

Epic of Everest Lowest new price: $15.59
Lowest used price: $8.00
List price: $24.95
Brand: Kino Lorber
Model: 34298797

The 1924 Everest expedition culminated in the deaths of two of the finest climbers of their generation, George Mallory and Andrew Irvine, and sparked an ongoing debate over whether or not they did indeed reach the summit. THE EPIC OF EVEREST (1924) is an awe-inspiring travelogue of their perilous journey.
Filming in brutally harsh conditions with a specially adapted camera, Captain John Noel captured images of breathtaking beauty and considerable historic significance. The film is also among the earliest filmed records of life in Tibet and features sequences at Phari Dzong (Pagri), Shekar Dzong (Xegar) and Rongbuk monastery. But what resonates so deeply is Noel s ability to frame the vulnerability, isolation and courage of people persevering in one of the world's harshest landscapes.
The restoration by the BFI National Archive has transformed the quality of the surviving elements of the film and reintroduced the original colored tints and tones. Revealed by the restoration, few images in cinema are as epic or moving as the final shots of a blood-red sunset over the Himalayas.

Special Features: Introducing THE EPIC OF EVEREST with Sandra Noel, Scoring THE EPIC OF EVEREST with Simon Fisher Turner, Restoring THE EPIC OF EVEREST with BFI curators, Trailer
