    Germany, summer 1936: Toni and Andi, friends since childhood, are particularly attracted to one mountain: the Eiger. Its north face, also known as "the death face", has not yet been conquered. If they succeed, they stand to gain not only the social recognition they yearn for, but also Olympic gold medals! During their preparations, they encounter Luise, the first woman Toni ever loved. Now a journalist, she has arrived to cover their attempt, along with the loyal Nazi reporter Arau. On the face the two men meet the Austrians Willi and Edi. Then things spin out of control for the climbers: the weather changes, and Willy is injured. A race against time and the forces of nature is set in motion.

    In 1936, in the Alps, only the Eiger North Wall still had to be climbed. Standing 1800 metres high, it was certainly the highest but also the most dangerous and difficult of the big inviolate walls. In 1935, two Bavarian alpinists from Munich lost their lives trying to reach the top. In 1936, two German soldiers, Toni Kurz and Andreas Interstoisser, made an attempt despite their commander's order not to do so. The attempt turned into a tragedy in which, not only the two Germans lost their lives, but also two Austrian companions who had joined them by chance.

    Perilous Assignment originally aired on November 6th, 1959 on the TV series Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color. After Walt’s introduction, we were introduced to Gaston Rebuffat, a French mountain guide. In those days it was very uncommon for an outsider to become an official guide of the Alps. That speaks to how talented he was. He would go on to serve as Mountain’s guide and second-unit director. Assignment was promoted as an in-depth study of the art of mountain climbing, but some felt it was more of an hour-long commercial for the soon-to-be-released Mountain. I felt it was a little bit of both. Sure they threw in some behind the scenes footage of the filming of the movie, but there were also a few pretty detailed lessons on how to properly scale a mountain. In fact I will have to steal the tag line from Mountain’s promotional poster and say the climbing footage was BREATHTAKING. Some of the maneuvers Rebuffat performed were simply amazing, as he was accompanied by his much less-skilled yet determined companion, Maurice.

    Dougal Haston, "enfant terrible" of his generation of Scottish climbers, graduated from Glencoe, Ben Nevis and prison to epic first ascents on the Eiger, Annapurna and Everest in a career cut short when, in 1977, aged only 36, he died meaninglessly, ingloriously -- in an avalanche while on a skiing day trip. Of such stuff are legends made, but in this absorbing, archive-rich and ultimately moving portrait, Dougal Haston both man and mountaineer is remembered and analyzed by those who knew him best and climbed with him the hardest.
