Watch movie: The Eiger Sanction (1975)
Tagline: HIS LIFELINE - held by the assassin he hunted.
Trivia: The shoot marked the last time that anyone was allowed to climb the "Totem Pole" in Monument Valley. In return for permission to movie there, climbers with the production had to remove all of the pitons, which had accumulated from years of climbing, on their way down.
Goofs: Continuity: Hemlock loses his ice axe on the mountain, but it is visible strapped to his pack as he hands in front of the railroad tunnel window later.
"Jonathan Hemlock is an art history professor and collector who finances his hobby by performing the odd sanction (assassination) for an obscure government bureau. He is forced to take a case where he must find out which of the members of a mountain climbing team is the Russian killer he has been given as a target by joining an expedition to climb the treacherous Eiger."
