The White Tower is a 1950 American Technicolor adventure film directed by Ted Tetzlaff and starring Alida Valli as a woman determined to fulfill her father's dream by conquering the mountain that killed her father, and Glenn Ford as the mountaineer who loves her. It is based on the 1945 novel of the same name by James Ramsey Ullman. She assembles an unusual climbing party of six people in the Swiss Alps to tackle the nearly impossible ascent of a mountain known as 'The White Tower,' which has never been climbed. While struggling together to conquer the obstacle, each climber shows his true worth, or lack thereof.


Mountain climbers in the Swiss Alps mull over past problems while trying to conquer a perilous peak.
