    Gary Hemming

    Jean Afanassieff (1996)

    he American Alpine climber Gary Hemming was a figure of the 60’s. The story of this out-of-the-common character is closely linked to that of the mountain rescue in Les Drus in 1966, in the mont Blanc range, a rescue he took the initiative for. The press fell on the event and raised Gary Hemming to the status of a national hero. All the papers show on the front page this big young man who looks like a 'beatnik' dressed all anyhow, with a wide smile and long fair hair. From then on, he is nicknamed the beatnik of the summits. In Chamonix he is already known. Gary landed in France in 1960 and while preparing a university degree in Grenoble, he devotes himself to his passion: climbing.

    La grande crevasse

    La grande crevasse

    Gérard Herzog (1966)

    Adaptation for the television of the novel by Roger Frison-Roche 'La grande crevasse'. The story is in the same context as 'Premier de cordee' but is not centered on the same characters. It tells the love story of Zian, a mountain guide, and Brigitte, a Parisian bourgeois. Their love is thwarted by the cultural difference between the two as well as by the cold welcome that is reserved for Brigitte, the stranger in this mountain environment. In the end, Brigitte understands that she is really in love with Zian who dies after a fall in a crevasse, during a hunting trip in the mountains.
