"After returning to his Greenland village with a slain polar bear, the great Eskimo hunter Aigo chooses Guninana as his wife, and the newlyweds live together happily until two British explorers, Sir Basil Pemberton and his assistant, Michael, arrive in the village. As soon as the white men impress Aigo with a few modern innovations, they ask him to join their expedition to capture live polar bears for the London Zoo. Tempted by a photograph of Sir Basil's smiling daughter Joan, the naive Aigo agrees to participate in the gruelling expedition and says goodbye to a pregnant Guninana. While on board Sir Basil's ship, Aigo learns English and is instructed in the ways of 'civilized' conduct. Soon after their arrival in the far north, Aigo builds a clever trap and, using himself as bait, captures an enormous polar bear, who mauls Aigo's leg in the process. Before he will allow the ship's doctor to operate on his leg, Aigo insists on gazing at Joan's photograph. Later, while listening to Joan send her father greetings during a Christmas radio broadcast from London, Aigo faints in a trance. When asked about his fainting spell, Aigo explains that, while making a spiritual voyage, he had seen Joan in London, and that earlier, her spirit had helped him to catch the polar bear. Aigo then asks Sir Basil to take him to London to meet Joan in person as payment for his work. In London, Joan, repulsed by his rough manners, remains cool toward Aigo until Sir Basil explains Aigo's belief that she is his old 'spiritual' friend. As a favor to her father, Joan agrees to humor Aigo and begins a patronizing flirtation with him. Eventually, Aigo succumbs to an infection and, while recuperating, catches Joan and her boyfriend embracing. Devastated by his discovery, Aigo collapses and is saved only by Joan's reassurances that his vision was a bad dream. Later, however, Joan gives Aigo a glass of whiskey, and suddenly intoxicated, he makes a forceful sexual advance. In her fury, Joan reveals her deception to Aigo, who is then returned to Greenland. There, Aigo, disillusioned and rejected, wanders into a blizzard and is found nearly frozen by his fellow villagers. Finally, Aigo is reborn by the sight of his young son and by the excitement of a village hunt"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940
