Nothing like it before, nothing like it again!

A young couple go climbing in the mountains on their honeymoon, she gets killed and he, unconsolable, wanders the mountains for years without her. Another couple come to the same mountains, meet him and ask him to be their guide. Disaster strikes yet again. A frozen mountain landscape is the setting for some of the most spectacular film shots of the era which have not been surpassed even with todays technology. Excellent!

This is the American release. 94 Minutes
