Clint Eastwood preformed the sequence where his character hangs off the side of a mountain by a cable himself without the use of a stunt double. Eastwood later told film critic Roger Ebert, that during the films release he donned a disguise and slipped into a screening of the film to judge the audiences reactions. To Eastwood's dismay, during the sequence a woman sitting in front of him asked her friend, 'Gee, I wonder how they did that?' to which she responded, 'Special effects.'" See more »

I love this movie, Like Play Misty For Me this is a different kind of Clint Eastwood movie which is not a western or a cop movie. This is an espionage thriller with a surprise ending. He plays an assassin who comes out of retirement to avenge the death of his friend. In order to catch the unidentified killer he must participate in a mountain climbing expedition which the killer is also participating. Clint really took a big chance while making this movie. He did all the dangerous mountain climbing stunts. If I was directing and starring in a movie I wouldn't do a stunt that is dangerous. I urge Clint Eastwood fans to watch this movie, they won't be disappointed.
