The story is far-fetched, to say the least. Movie director Engles (Newton) picks extra Blair (Price) to keep an eye on people congregating at a ski hut for some sinister purpose. How does Engles know about this gathering? Never explained. What is Blair's sole qualification for this cloak-and-dagger job? He served under Engles in the Second World War and can be trusted. Blair blatantly questions all of the suspects, letting them know they're under his clumsy surveillance. Carla, the sole female in the bunch, promptly falls in love with him, despite her rather checkered past. Engles later stupidly shows up by himself to confront this varied bunch of cutthroats at the isolated hut. Von Kellerman (Lom), an unrepentant Nazi, blurts out the entire story without much prompting (or incentive), saying, "Why not?" The action picks up at the end and everything is sort of resolved in a ridiculous and unbelievable way.
There's plenty of skiing scenes, if you're into that sort of thing. Otherwise, don't waste your time on this tripe.
