This film brings back memories from the first movie i watched, "Tundra" from 1936. It had the same elements: A post pilot crashing on the tundra, getting lost, finds a pal, a small bear who had lost track of its parents. It was a very touching story, and exiting. But thanks to Hollywood - it all worked out well in a happy ending!
When I now watch "ALASKA,it seems to be based on the same "TUNDRA".
I have not seen any referance to it in the credits, but hoped that someone out there who also have seen "TUNDRA" could help to solve my "mystery".
