I saw this movie when I was a kid. A borderline "B" movie about a sailor on leave in Switzerland, meeting a girl (Simone Signoret) and having some complications. The film is memorable for me because of Cornel Wilde, a natural athlete and excellent skiier who couldn't ski in the film. His antics on the slopes required great athletic skill, which he had. Anyway, the film is not available in video, will only be seen on some cable network's late night film show and frankly, has a thin storyline. But, Wilde was always worth the price of admission. A warm, friendly man personally (his daughter Wendy and I were at UC Berkeley in the early 60s) and always a pleasing actor. Hope you see it sometime.
