Abstract
During the 1950s and 60s the late Hans Gmoser produced ten feature length films of ski touring, rock climbing and mountaineering adventures—capturing the alpine magic of the era. Hans Gmoser was one of the greatest mountain filmmakers in North America. Hans Gmoser donated his films to the Whyte Museum Archives in the 1990s. Hans Gmoser passed away in 2006, and in 2009 the Hans Gmoser Film Project was initiated when Chic Scott and Marg Saul, a Calgary Mountaineer, decided to pull the films from the Archives of the Whyte Museum and revive them. This project came with a number of significant challenges. Firstly, the films had to be digitized and then have music and narration added to them. One of the greatest concerns was to make sure these new editions were inline with the original films. Will Schmidt of Sky Light Productions was hired. Hans had originally given live narrations with the films during the original screenings, so his nephew Michael Hintringer, was used to narrate, using Hans' original scripts. Thanks to the tireless work of Chic Scott, Marg Saul, Will Schmidt and multiple donors the Hans Gmoser Film Preservation Project was completed in 2014. The set not only contains the ten films but also new interviews by Chic Scott with some of the stars of the films.
