      Reviews 33% Audience Score Fewer than 50 Ratings In the Swiss Alps, Carla (Alida Valli) is preparing to scale the White Tower, a mountain her father died trying to climb.

      Steve D A story not worth telling. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/22/24 Full Review Audience Member A decent thriller for its time once you overlook certain obvious flaws in mountain climbing. But good enough. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Basically just another mountain climbing pic. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Adventure flick has beautiful location filming and a high grade cast but is nothing special. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member pretty good (for 1950) mountain climbing pic Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member There are more enthralling mountain adventures than The White Tower, however this sets a benchmark. The strong cast also pays off as its a sturdy piece of mid twentieth century cinema. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
