Slide 8: Ice Station Zebra (1968)
John Sturges' chilly thriller makes the North Pole the center of a hot Cold War conflict. A Soviet satellite with aerial photos of both US and USSR nuclear weapon sites has crashed by the North Pole. Rock Hudson, Patrick McGoohan, Ernest Borgnine and Jim Brown rush to North Pole on a nuclear sub. But the Russians are also racing to collect the disable satellite, and it looks like they are going collide at obscure weather station, Ice Station Zebra.
