December 21, 1955 – The People and Places Featurette Men Against the Arctic is Released to Theaters

On December 21, 1955, the fourth People and Places featurette, Men Against the Arctic, was released to theaters. Written and directed by Winston Hibler, this 30-minute documentary details how certain Coast Guard ships, known as “icebreakers,” are able to make their way through the substantial Arctic ice. It would go on to win the Academy Award for Best Documentary Short Subject, and would also be entered into the 6th Berlin International Film Festival in 1956.
