Weiße Hölle vom Piz Palü, Die
Newlyweds Johannes Krafft (Gustav Diessl) and Maria Krafft (Mizzi Götzel) have been warned not to be goofing off while they are climbing the pale mountain in the Bernina Alps of Switzerland. Of course, they do not listen and Maria falls into a crack and her rope brakes.
Now many years later Dr. Johannes Krafft is still wandering over the mountain looking for his lost Maria.
A new couple come to the common cabin on the where many climbers and skiers start from. Then they meet Dr. Krafft. A hand full of student hikers are about to attempt the toughest part of the mountain. Krafft wants to beat them to it. Only it is too dangerous to go alone. Therefore, the couple decides to help him get the jump on the students.
Well the race is on and here come the student up the back strip. Now we remember what happened to Maria Krafft when she did not heed the warning to pay attention. So guess what? Yep Hans Brandt (Ernst Petersen) insisted on taking the lead so he can show his stuff.
Will the students who are taking a shortcut get there first? On the other hand, do they get a few surprises?
This film is a true cliffhanger.
Will Hans showoff his stuff or will they get stuck on a cliff cave and need to be saved by Flieger Udet (Ernst Udet)?
What a minute did we not see Ernst Udet save someone with his plane in "Sturme uber dem Mont Blanc"
