What is interesting that "Snow"...can have eerie effects - subtlety scary when used in movies like "Scott of Antarctic" (Ealing). Illustrative of the claustrophobic effect of this kind of film
This was also demonstrated in the "Shining" as the isolated backdrop of the hotel - Kubrick at his best visually...although I was not happy with the film because of the "Nicholson" overacting!!!! But, overall what a good film.
I have a real fondness for "Groundhog Day" and I certainly think the the "snow" element really added to the overall feel of the movie.
Andrew, yes I remember "Do You Like Snow" - excellent.
"The Heroes of Telemark" with Kirk Douglas as snow themed classic. I had a nice Walton 4 x 400 of this also if you have a mind chech this very scary movie out - anyone seen it? - called "Windchill" (2007) with Emily Blunt...incredibly atmospheric. Here is a link to the trailer:

The Hammer film was great and the snow sets impressive, helped by the black and white photography, I think. But nobody has mentioned The Empire Strikes Back... also had its own Yeti creature!
