    Etoiles et tempêtes

    Gaston Rébuffat (1955)

    Gaston Rebuffat accompanied by Maurie Baquet, climb on the most difficult faces of the alps. This is Rebuffat's thrid film, the first one in color, with wich he won the Grand Prix in the Trento Festival. In the film, Rebuffat exposes his personal vision on how he conceives mountaineering. The film starts going back to his origins and we see him climbing in his homeland, Les Calanques. Then, in Chamonix, Rebuffat meets Maurice Baquet, and teaches him on the climbing techniques on different terrains. We follow them in the most beautiful passages of the north faces of the Piz Badile, Les Grandes Jorasses, the Cima Grande of Lavaredo, the Eiger and the Matterhorn. Their journey ends with the summit of Mont Blanc by the ridge of Peuterey.

    Perilous assignment

    Hamilton S. Luske (1959)

    The film records the making of '20,000 Leagues Under the Sea' and 'Third Man on the Mountain'. This episode of Walt Disney Presents is actually an extended advertisement for the upcoming Disney theatrical feature Third Man on the Mountain. Although the stars of that film (including James MacArthur and Michael Rennie), the real hero of the proceedings is French mountain climber Gaston Rebufatt, who functioned as Third Man on the Mountain's guide and second-unit director while the company was on location in Switzerland. The highlight finds Rebufatt instructing a novice (Maurice Baquet) on the intricacies of mountain climbing. The images belong to Rebufat's film 'Etoile et tempête'.
