An excellent film. I posted a couple of similar photos with this review.

Looks like they might be smoking some grass as well.

Thanks flick! Seems like they were a bunch of happy hookahs.

Nice mention of White Thunder/The Viking, I didn't know Varick Frissell was an acquaintance of Cooper's but it makes sense. A friend of mine from Newfoundland says his grandfather was one of the sealers bounding over the ice in The Viking, thankfully he wasn't on the boat that exploded and killed Frissell and his crew.
