Editorial Reviews

Retired mountain climber and guide Zachary Wheeler (Spencer Tracy) reluctantly helps his younger brother (Robert Wagner) scale a treacherous mountain slope to reach the site of a recent plane crush. Truly his brother's keeper, he puts aside their differences and agrees to help his inexperienced brother on an immoral looting mission. After reaching the crash site the brothers discover a lone survivor (Anna Kashfi). Zachary immediately starts caring for the injured young woman planning her rescue while his brother would rather abandon her and make off with the loot. The stellar cast also includes Claire Trevor, William Demarest and E.G. Marshall. This one-of-a-kind action-adventure was directed by Edward Dmytryk (The Caine Mutiny).

I have long awaited this film's conversion to DVD. As a kid I remember so well watching this in black and white on "Saturday Night At The Movies".

The DVD of this film, produced by Olive Films, is a fairly good transfer, although there are some scenes where the color seems to fluctuate...but then again, that may just be a result of the age of the film (well over 50 years). Certainly not enough of a problem to make the movie less enjoyable, although oddly enough, it's the in-studio "mountain climbing" where the color varies the most, not the natural Alps footage. And, considering that much of this movie was actually filmed in the French Alps, well, it's still magnificent Vista Vision photography! And, they do a great job of combining in-studio footage with Alps backgrounds, making this more realistic than many films of its era. Unfortunately, despite being in the Alps and it's snowing...you can't see their breath! Even in Ronald Colman's 1937 film "Lost Horizon" they worked in a large freezer so you could see their breath in the mountain scenes. But again, one really doesn't get lost in these shortcomings, because Spencer Tracy's acting is superb.

There are two problems with this film. First, the age difference between Spencer Tracy and Robert Wagner was not reasonable to make them brothers. Father and son would have been believable, and in my view, would have worked. But then again, in most movies you have to suspend belief in one area or another, so, okay...I can live with it. The other issue here is that Robert Wagner is such a jerk (I was going to say...

Format: DVD
Without a doubt "The Mountain" made in 1956 is my all-time favorite film, mainly because of Spencer Tracy the all-time greatest Hollywood actor. There are many special qualities that this movie possesses which might not be appreciated after the first viewing. While watching notice that before any intros are displayed, the opening scene wastes little time showing a plane in distress which then crashes, with great visual and audio effects, on top of a mountain. The two main characters (Spencer Tracy as "Zachary Teller" and Robert Wagner as "Christopher Teller") are brothers that for reasons of good vs. evil decide to climb the mountain to reach the wreck of the crashed airliner. This becomes the basis of a fabulous and unusual plot packed with emotion, adventure and spiritual meaning. Zachary wants to help Chris climb due to the danger and the love for his brother but Chris wants to climb to take the dead passenger's possessions and escape his life as a simple farm hand. One cannot help but identify with Zachary's struggle to convince Chris that what he is doing is wrong as indicated by the following line stated before the climb began: "You want me to take you up to the top of the mountain in the sight of God so that you can pick the pockets of dead people? Isn't there anything inside of you that tells you its wrong?" Chris then responds "I'd do worse than that to get out of here", thereby setting the stage for a "clash of wills". For those who have not seen the film I will not say how it ends as I wish that all who read this review who have not seen it can one day give it a look. It has beautiful scenery of the French Alps and the countryside as well. Enjoy and God bless.

This is absolutley one of my favorite all time movies. Spencer Tracy plays an old famous Mountaineer who has retired to his modest home to tend sheep. Then an Airplane crash on a nearby mountaintop changes his life. His young greedy womanizing brother (Played by a very young Robert Wagner) gets him to lead a climb to the crash site.

It's also a good love story. The old man makes some very heart wrenching decisions.

The climbing scenes are very authentic for mid-1900 style climbing styles and I believe this is Spencer's finest movie. Some of the others actors aren't quite as good but I watch the movie at least once a year on VHS to rejuvenate me.

The movie to me is a five star & one of Spencer Tracy's finest performances. The edition with Korean & Chinese subtitles [THE MOUNTAIN with Spencer Tracy (Import Edition)(Adventure) (1956)], as shown in the cover image of this product has been transferred from VHS - probably the same edition sold by Paramount in VHS 20 years ago. I was very disappointed as i already had a copy from the same VHS edition--(the screen noise & dust specks make me think it IS the same NTSC VHS Paramount edition), & I think, the one i already have is a hair better in image crispness, thus a slightly better transfer made by Euro International DVDs. A wonderful movie & hope it will receive a proper digital transfer, if not from Paramount, from the company that is now doing some of the old Paramount pics. I apologize for disappointing anyone who believes they are getting a genuine transfer from other than VHS source.
