About the Movie
Based on a true story, here is the thrilling, critically acclaimed account of Rudi Matt (James MacArthur), a young kitchen worker who is determined to conquer the Citadel -- the jagged, snowcapped peak that claimed his father's life. Encouraged by both a famed English climber (Michael Rennie) and the youth's devoted girlfriend (Janet Munro), Rudi goes through a grueling training period before he is ready to face the incredible dangers of the killer mountain. Shot on location in Zermatt, Switzerland, and featuring spectacular scenery and an outstanding cast, THIRD MAN ON THE MOUNTAIN is one of the finest adventure films of all time!
A little seen gem
The movie that inspired Disneyland's Matterhorn! turns out to be a solid and satisfying drama/adventure story, with a dash of young romance. The manly mountaineers are solidly cast (keep your eyes peeled for an appearance by Roger Delgado), and Janet Munro is absolutely adorable as always. I'm surprised this film isn't better known or a little more celebrated. It's refreshingly exciting to realize that the men climbing the mountains aren't computer generated!
