good adventure film

I was very surprised to see no IMDb user has brought comment about this little picture. A pretty good little movie shot in the Rockies - I guess. The face to face between Ray Danton and Rory Calhoun is interesting. The opening scene is outstanding, too. And when you're french, as I am, you can't stay unconcerned either.

And the presence of Julie Adams brings some spice at the story. Thomas Gomez is as good as ever. A perfect character for him.

The shooting on locations was, I am sure, exhausting for the entire staff.

A fast paced movie with an ending which is not forgettable at all. Even in a hundred years.
