Many films and TV shows have also used the trick of putting a small wire cage with a piece of dry ice in each actor's mouth to simulate a frigid environment. I remember reading production notes for "Conan the Destroyer" where they discussed doing this for the sequence in the ice castle on the lake.
AFAIK, the only time that method was tried was during the filming of Frank Capra's Dirigible in 1931 (as described in his autobiography, The Name Above the Title). It wasn't a resounding success.
