those guys were lunatics or something
24 July 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

A few years before Leni Riefenstahl infamously filmed "Triumph of the Will", she starred in this early action flick, portraying a woman going up Mont Blanc to rescue a friend trapped by a snowstorm. When you look at how people hiked over those mountains, it starts looking like they were crazy or something; I mean, what kind of person walks that close to a crevasse?! But no matter, "Sturme uber dem Mont Blanc" is still a pretty interesting movie. I seem to recall that I heard something about Hitler seeing Ms. Riefenstahl in these sorts of movies and growing to admire her, and thus he decided that she would be the perfect person to film his propaganda documentary. Weird how these things work out.
