Pod Hard

Action Movie History 1929 (Die weiße Hölle vom Piz Palü)

May 19, 2020

Bring out your lederhosen and your trusty pick axe - it's time to go mountain climbing with Pod Hard!

Jonas Högberg & Anders Hultqvist watch The White Hell of Pitz Palu (Die weiße Hölle vom Piz Palü), a bergfilme nowadays perhaps most known as a reference - and part of a cover story - in Inglorious Basterds.

And it's a very odd movie, to be sure. Action fans might be disappointed as the movie in total only delivers around 10-15 seconds of undeniably great doll action in the Swiss mountains.

But there is a lot to talk about! Anders details a sexual suggestion theme and trace the many faces of the brooding hero Gustav Diessl, Jonas have only contempt for the clean shaven German actors and discuss headpieces. And where does Spongebob Short Pants fit into all of this?

"The ice seems foreboding."
