Storyline

Following the death of his son, in a skiing accident in the Austrian Alps, the cold and emotion-less Dan Slater travels to Austria for the funeral. In the face of official indifference he decides to investigate and little by little strange inconsistencies start to appear leading Dan to conclude that the death of his son was no accident. A retired, former undercover operative, Frank Wheatley, whom he had hoped would watch out for his son proves useless as Dan seeks out the murderer's. Eventually, Dan finds Gina, the companion of wealthy socialite Mrs. Carrington, who puts him on the correct trail little realizing that he is falling into a cunning, cleverly thought out trap laid by Berthold. Berthold hopes to kidnap Slater and substitute him with an exact double in order to obtain a mole in the highest echelons of the CIA. Will he succeed or will Frank and Gina realize something is amiss and rescue Slater? Written by Mark Smith <msmith@osi.co.uk>

Trivia

The mountain range vista seen in the movie is the Tyrolean Alps situated in the state of Tyrol in western Austria. This espionage film is notable for its snow-capped scenery and was released before the snow-laden James Bond movie On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969). The late aerial cameraman John Jordan who died whilst working on Catch-22 (1970) worked on both these spy movies. See more »

A travelogue with laughable music.... plus a slight plot.
22 July 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I started to watch this film then suddenly there was this awful din! Then I realised it must be the Mexico Brass Band and String Quartet warming up in the background. I strained my eyes, but no! They were nowhere to be seen. What could it be? Then I realised it was the background 'music' that is there supposedly to enhance a film- but this 'music' was in the foreground obviously in an attempt for the musicians to have a Number 1 hit in Greenland. But to the film..... with Yul Brynner sensibly wearing a hat to keep out the cold from his ever balding head looked as though he was missing his six other 'Magnificent' comrades and wistfully glanced towards the mountains in the hope that they would be skiing down to join him. Britt Ekland looked pretty, but her bottom lip is a little to thick for my taste, and Anton Diffring looking naked without his German Uniform. However, Clive Revill always is a cracking character actor. I gallantly tried to watch the wooden plot that has been done many times before in various guises, but I just couldn't hack the music so it was..... click! Goodbye!
