As Capt. Carlsen was Danish born, the fortune of Flying Enterprise was tightly followed by the Danish press too and have kept in danes remembrence since. This way I'm aware of the story though born several years after.
Without the attention of capturing the story of South Goodwin and her Crew, I consider the Flying Enterprise story to have been an ideal situation for the newsreels: Just after the Christmas and a situation evolving over relatively long time including a stubborn Captain and heroism and able to document by pictures and film.
Though more tragic, the story of South Goodwin was in contradiction already old news as the first pictures was showed in the newspapers!
