The Crazy Gang, a pre-Monty Python group of British "nut" comedians, were popular on stage and screen from 1935 through 1962. In The Frozen Limits, the comic sextet--Bud Flanagan, Chesney Allen, Jimmy Nervo, Teddy Knox, Charlie Naughton and Jimmy Gold--head to Alaska to take advantage of the 1898 Gold Rush. Unfortunately it's now 1939, and no one is in a rush anymore--but better late than never. The Crazy Gang's antics are here amplified by the presence of old codger Moore Marriott, on leave from his regular stint in Britain's Will Hay films. Frozen Limits was directed by Marcel Varnel, a competent journeyman best known to American film buffs for his co-direction (with William Cameron Menzies) of Chandu the Magician (32).
