The Looters must have been one rugged shoot for the cast given the story location and the profession of Rory Calhoun's character. But if you haven't seen it, it's an undiscovered gem.
Taking a break from westerns, Rory Calhoun plays a mountain guide with training from the Army mountain rangers. As it turns out his old outfit is having artillery practice in the neighborhood.
But even closer is old army buddy Ray Danton who just dropped in out of nowhere. Danton saved a wounded Calhoun in the Italian Theater during the war and he's looking basically to get away from the world and Calhoun's mountain cabin is about as far a retreat from civilization as you can get.
Even farther away from civilization is the mountain side where a small commercial airliner crashed. As Calhoun is on a mountain climbing training exercise with Danton they're on the scene to locate the downed plane.
All that's left of the plane are surviving passengers Julie Adams, Frank Faylen, and Thomas Gomez. We also learn that Gomez who's a nothing of a clerk back in the city has found $250,000.00 from a dead Treasury man and he joins forces with Danton who sees his ticket back to an easy life. But they need Calhoun to get them down off the mountain.
This film truly belongs to Ray Danton who never had the career he should have. Watching his moral degeneration as he leads the whole party down the mountain is something to see. Even more than The George Raft Story or The Rise And Fall Of Legs Diamond this film may be Danton's career role.
There's also quite the climax involving the army maneuvers and Calhoun's maneuvers to stop Danton. The Looters is another undiscovered gem, a real sleeper from Universal-International.
