Trivia

This film is inspired by events that took place at the end of world war two when the Nazis hid much of the gold they looted during the war. The gold came from many sources including confiscated gold reserves of occupied countries or gold that came from victims of concentration camps. In 1945 most of the gold bullion was either deposited into foreign banks or hidden in salt mines or deep lakes in Germany, Austria and northern Italy. Treasure hunters, including some former Nazis converged on the Alpine regions of Europe in order to recover this hidden gold. See more »

Sinister goings on in the Alps
19 June 2006 | by (Derby, England) – See all my reviews

I recently picked up a VHS copy of Snowbound at a good price and I wasn't too disappointed, but it wasn't that brilliant.

A man who works as a movie extra gets a job as a spy and is sent to a remote ski cabin in the Alps to investigate strange happenings there. It turns out there is some Nazi gold hidden underneath it and there are others after it too. Who will get their hands on it?

One or two negative things in this movie include people talking Italian which makes you lose the plot a little (these scenes would have been better subtitled) and the plot itself is a little confusing at times anyway. But there is some nice scenery and a good music score though.

An excellent cast too: Robert Newton (Treasure Island, Tom Brown's School Days), Herbert Lom (Mysterious Island, North West Frontier), Dennis Price, Stanley Holloway (The Titfield Thunderbolt, The Lavender Hill Mob), Guy Middleton and Mila Parely.

Although not brilliant, Snowbound is worth checking out.

Rating: 2 and a half stars out of 5.
