This is a movie by the US Army from 1964. It’s about a project called Camp Century, a secret base in the Arctic build in the late 1950s during the Cold War.
The movie says this project is for research purposes, but actually it is a propaganda movie covering the real plans of the US military. A top secret programm called Project Iceworm to place nuclear missiles in range of Moscow. Against this backdrop the amount of money, time and work spent for just a cover is incredible.
