One of the best of the whole show

So far, I consider it as one of the best I have seen in this adventure TV series from the fifties. Each time our buddies have to deal with different settings, and locations. Even if the audiences know that all this show were shot in studios.

This episode is an homage to the Yeti tale, among the Himalaya mountains. The famous invisible monster, as was the previous episode I watched a hour ago, and that I also commented, about the Loch Ness beast.

In this episode, there is an exciting climax, an avalanche sequence, that doesn't seem to be a stock shot, as we often see in this show. As we may expect for such tiny budget productions. The avalanche scene seems to be shot for the episode, and I find it very surprising. Nearly a disaster story for this tale. And this very tale itself provides us a good suspense.

And I will finish by pointing out that the director is no one else but John English, the former William Witney's Buddy for the Republic serials of the golden age. Jack English was at good school with his pal, whose he was the only son's godfather.
