A wonderful picture that has great adventurous moments!
I have not seen this movie in a long,long,long time.However I can not ever forget it! The beautiful Canadian Rockies,where I believe it was filmed was breath taking!The scene where Wendell Corey and Stewart Granger are camping and have to avoid wolves is as exciting moment as any adventure film I've ever scene! My congratulations to Director Andrew Marton (1952) for making a 48 year old,want to see it again!
In a time of action movies,with far out special effects,sex,profanity and plots that seem to run together with next months movies,this one has suspence that is believable and yes with a beautiful Cyd Charisse!
