A DRAMATIC STORY THAT WILL HOLD YOU SPELLBOUND FROM THE VERY BEGINNING!
Retired mountain climber and guide Zachary Wheeler (Spencer Tracy) reluctantly helps his younger brother (Robert Wagner) scale a treacherous mountain slope to reach the site of a recent plane crush. Truly his brother’s keeper, he puts aside their differences and agrees to help his inexperienced brother on an immoral looting mission. After reaching the crash site the brothers discover a lone survivor (Anna Kashfi). Zachary immediately starts caring for the injured young woman planning her rescue while his brother would rather abandon her and make off with the loot.
Directed by Edward Dmytryk (The Caine Mutiny) this one-of-a-kind action-adventure was based on “La neige en deuil” a 1952 French novel by Henri Troyat which was inspired by the crash of Air India Flight 245 in 1950.
