Films about mountains and mountain climbing.
(The title of my list is based upon a quote from the 1950’s mountain exploration documentary film: ‘The Conquest of Everest’.)
‘It isn’t the mountain ahead that wears you out; it’s the grain of sand in your shoe.’ – Robert William Service (poet)
‘When we tire of well-worn ways, we seek for new. This restless craving in the souls of men spurs them to climb, and to seek the mountain view.’ – Ella Wheeler Wilcox (author and poet)
‘It is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves.’ – Edmund Hillary (mountaineer)
