Plot Summary
In the Swiss Alps, Carla (Alida Valli) is preparing to scale the White Tower, a mountain her father died trying to climb. Although local guides warn her against doing so, an undaunted Carla assembles a crew of climbers who, much like her, accept the challenge for their own very personal reasons -- including a French author (Claude Rains), a British naturalist (Cedric Hardwicke), a former Nazi (Lloyd Bridges) and Martin, an American pilot (Glenn Ford) who is romantically pursuing Carla.

    If I recall correctly, Lloyd Bridges doesn\'t make it to the top of the mountain, but falls to his death. Is this film still in circulation ?

    I enjoyed this film when it first came out - many years ago. The German hiker in it was Lloyd Bridges (WW II was on but not for these people climbing the mountain). That didn't mean there wasn't competion of the Germans against everyone else. Amazing how the pilot crashed at the same mountain he used to climb before the war - but that's fiction for you.
