:Lust in the snow
26 November 2015 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

John Derek produced and starred in High Hell a story of a mine on the top of a mountain and Derek's determination to get the gold out of it. The only problem is that some really crazy people built a town at the foot of the mountain and any real blasting will result in an avalanche. That part has me reaching, for the life of me I can't wrap my mind around that idea.

But Derek and a small crew have the gold fever and they plan to stay in a mountain cabin. Wouldn't you know it, Elaine Stewart at her most sultry is the wife of one of them and she's come up. Her part is kind of like the one Marilyn Monroe played in The Misfits. I'd hate to think Arthur Miller got the idea of his masterpiece from this drivel.

All the clichés with six men and a girl trapped on a mountain grow wild in this film.
