    If you see any of the main stream films, most are done in BC.
    No amount of education can help those who want to remain permanently ignorant of facts, which includes those whom have been educated.

    Not overtly "Alaskan," (by many definitions) but filmed in part in Petersburg, Ak:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ice_Palace_(film)

    It's funny though that one that actually is filmed in AK gets this review:
    Ice Palace was a commercial and critical failure. A Ferber biography described it as "glacial at the box office."[2] The New York Times reviewer called it "as false and synthetic a screen saga as has rolled out of a color camera" and "no more authentic than cornstarch snow on a studio set."[
    Science has a rich history of proving itself wrong.

    Okay okay okay...
    Filmed in Alberta, Canada...
    Regardless... this is my most absolute favorite Alaska Film:

    The Edge
    Anthony Hopkins
    Alec Baldwin
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0119051/






    This is almost on the same level as 'A River Runs Through It' for me.
    Lurker.

    I have to agree with AKDSLDOG's choice of the Dick Proenneke's film. I thought it was Alone in the Wilderness, but either way, it is great. I have seen it at least 20 times. When nothing else is on TV, it gets put on.

    "This is My Alaska" is one of the best. My favorite scene is when they load the hunters up onto a dozer and just drive cross country up into the hills - don't see that type of access much anymore

    "Motherlode" is a good movie too (with Charleton Heston as lead, who could go wrong?), set in the upper Stikine area. Plane crash, gold mine, crazy old miner (or not???), the works. A little corny at times, but fun to watch all the same.
