    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'.
