I have seen this movie 4 times - what more can I say.
25 July 2004 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

I first saw this movie in 1950 and I fell in love with the music. I still play the themes today. Although I have since visited parts of Switzerland I still yearn to see the Matterhorn and find out if it's true that if you call out the name of your true love, it will echo around the mountain.This was the myth featured in the film and although Richard thought he loved the woman who saved his life up there, when his wife's small aircraft crashed on the mountain and he rushed to be by her side - he called her name and back came the echo - how romantic. Michael Dennison and Dulcie Gray were a married couple in true life and they didn't have any problems playing together. Anne
