Society of Women in Arctic or Antarctic

I know what you’re going to think, but this is a legitimate movie memory. I’m 69 years old, so I am way beyond playing troll games!! Some time between the late 1950s and 1965, we were watching a movie on TV at our grandma’s house in St. Cloud, MN. The movie was set in the arctic or antarctic, at what was probably a U.S. research base. The men discovered a society/race of women who lived as comfortably in the sub-zero environment as we do on a 80-degree summer day in Minnesota. Since this was no doubt a circa 1960 movie, the women were in scanty flowing clothing. When the women encountered the warmer temperatures in the research base, they promptly fainted from the, what was to them, extreme heat. This is all I recall, other than the film was probably a drama, not a comedy. I have no memory of specific actors or a movie title. A strange little movie memory from the past that has always lurked around the corners of my brain!

  1. Warner Brothers Presents (1955-56 TV series)
    Episode: Deep Freeze

    I read about this somewhere and remembered that it starred Allison Hayes (Attack of the 50 ft Woman) as an alien wearing a short skirt who couldn’t withstand temperatures above freezing.

  2. I can’t find this anywhere and I don’t think its ever been released, but I just remembered where I had read about it. It was in a catalog I had from Sinister Cinema. They had 4 minutes of footage that was filmed off of a TV screen by some guy who shot it with his 8 mm home movie camera when he was a kid! You can see this footage with added music as an extra on their DVD-R of ‘Toto in the Moon’ (1958). You might check out their website but this might be their last year, which is sad because they’ve been around since 1984.
