I never owned an Olympus 35mm camera, I have always been using Nikons and Canons such s F-2's FM-2's, F3's and F-1's. But like all 35mm film cameras, they required care when loading them. I fold the end of the leader, insert it into the take up spool, and advance it one frame then release the shutter. Then I use the rewind knob to tighten the film against the rails and ensure the sprocket engages the perforations in the film, then close the back. Then I advance the film again while watching the rewind knob. It should rotate when you advance the film. If it doesn't, the film is not hooked to the take up spool properly.
That is what should happen when you wind the film. As old as your camera is, it might have a mechanical issue that a camera repairman can correct. Olympus made some really high quality cameras, and I have tried OM-1's before, for their time they were top of the line like the Nikons and Canons I used. I would take a roll of test photos during the daytime and process the film first before using it at night to see if everything is working properly.'
One thing about film and extreme cold. Most film can get really brittle in extreme cold, and that can result in the film snapping apart if you advance it quickly. Also, in very dry air, it can cause static discharges that expose the film in places. I have personally seen how that can destroy every photo on a roll of film before you even develop the film. Advance the film slowly in extreme cold to avoid this, and as I recall, people used anti-static substances to suppress static discharges on the camera's pressure plate.
