Not as good as the book, but still good.

Walt Disney would be proud of the movie "Third Man on the Mountain". He wanted the entertain both young and old and he certainly does that with "Third Man on the Mountain".I was impressed how many times both young and old characters learned from their failures how to succeed in the future. There is so much warmth and humanity to this wonderful film. I would be proud to show it to any age group. There is something for everyone in "The Third Man on the Mountain!!

Filmed on location in Switzerland; Walt Disney loved the look of the Matterhorn so much he added the now famous ride to Disneyland as a tribute. Same young actors as "Swiss Family Robinson" they were good friends in real life. Good coming of age story.
