Product Description

The Mountain

Amazon.ca

In these days when the natural wonders of the world can be so easily synthesized on film by computers, it's a little tough to look upon studio sets of mountain exteriors as anything but unsatisfactory. But that's the situation with Edward Dmytryk's 1956 drama The Mountain, starring Spencer Tracy as a retired mountain guide who accompanies his brash young brother (Robert Wagner) on the ascent of a rugged slope to the site of a plane crash. Essentially, Tracy goes along to keep his venal sibling from getting killed, but once at the crash location his attention shifts toward helping a Hindu survivor (Anna Kashfi) reach safety. Not so the agenda of Wagner's character, whose real mission is looting valuables from the dead. The strains and dangers of the climb up and down perfectly mirror the tense dynamics between the two men, and on this score Dmytryk (The Caine Mutiny) does a splendid job. Less compelling, however, is the action, which requires far too much suspension of disbelief even for the late '50s. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

If you enjoy action movies that slowly build to an exciting climax you will enjoy this one. Spencer Tracy as the older brother was a bit old to play the older brother to Robert Wagner but I guess they felt the younger brother needed to be much younger and irresponsible. As for Tracy's feat of strength, people in stressful situations get the adrenaline flowing and can do some incredible things. You have to be strong to endure that type of climbing. This movie takes place on a mountain where the two brothers go to see if there are survivors to a plane crash. Tracy's intentions are pure of heart while Wagner's are of looting. The turmoil between the two and the treacherous mountain terrain make it a movie that will draw you into this well made drama.

In my opinion, "The Mountain" was a great movie for the most part. Two brothers, Zachary Teller (Spencer Tracy) and Chris Teller (Robert Wagner) star in this adventure movie where they climb the Swiss Alps in search of a crashed airplane. Chris wants to climb the mountain and find the wreckage so he can find a lot of money from the area. However, Chris hasn't ever had any climbing experience, so it might not be safe for him to climb the mountains alone. Zachary gives in and decides to go with him, even though he doesn't agree with what Chris wants to do.
"The Mountain" is exciting and at times a little bit compelling while the two brothers climb the mountain and come close to death. Their arguing makes for an interesting twist in the movie. When they find the Hindu girl, it makes the movie even more interesting. Also, the scenery of the Swiss Alps is another good thing about "The Mountain." My only complaint with the movie is that Spencer Tracy's huge lie at the end of the movie almost turned me against the movie. But it didn't turn out as bad as it seemed like it was going to. If you like exciting adventure movies, I recommend getting "The Mountain."

This movie isn't really that bad, but there are too many improbable and doubtful aspects in it. For one thing Tracey plays Wagner's brother, although he looks more like his granfather (when this film was made Wagner was 26 and Tracey was 56 and looked 20 years older). Also, the feats of physical endurance are so overdone to seem almost ludicrous, even for a nineteen fifties film. The ending was OK, but I couldn't figure out why Tracey's character would bother claiming the looting of the airplane as his doing to save his brother's reputation (since they were the only two up on the mountain he could have just not mentioned it at all). But despite all these faults, the movie isn't that bad. But not one of Tracey's better films.

This movie is a classic and a great one to watch if you are a climber. If you teach climbing or outdoor skills, it it great to use for staff training. the plot is OK, but brings about many conversations about human nature and family ties. I highly recommend it!
