Exciting mystery/adventure film set in the alps. Ex-soldier Neil Blair is working on a film in London as an extra, when he's spotted by the director, Bob Engles, who happens to be his old C.O. Engles sends Blair to the alps, along with film cameraman Joe Wesson, ostensibly to scout a location for a new film. In reality, Blair is to keep an eye out for the people who arrive at the alpine hut, and send reports back to Engles-who was a former intelligence officer. Soon a number of shifty characters arrive, and after an attempt on Blair's life, Engles arrives. It seems that the Nazis diverted a fortune in gold to the alps, and it is buried somewhere around the hut. Good climax scene where the hut burns to the ground-along with some of the principals. Nice acting by Dennis Price, Stanley Holloway, Herbert Lom and Guy Middleton; film was based on the novel The Lonely Skier by Hammond Innes.
