The Call of the North (German: Der Ruf des Nordens) is a 1929 German adventure film directed by Nunzio Malasomma and Mario Bonnard and starring Luis Trenker, Max Holzboer, and Eva von Berne.[1] Originally produced as a silent film, it was subsequently released with an added soundtrack.

The only survivor of a polar expedition returns to try to find out what happened to his colleagues. It is similar to the tradition of mountain films, with large amounts of location footage shot, but with the setting moved to the North Pole.

The film's sets were designed by Heinrich Richter.
