    Synopsis


    The Eiger Sanction
    Clint Eastwood both directed and starred in this thriller based on a novel by Trevanian. Dr. Jonathan Hemlock (Eastwood) is a professor of art history who formerly had a deadly secret life; he was a hired assassin working with an international intelligence organization. Normally content to collect and study art, Hemlock is forced by blackmail to perform one last hit, or, as the organization euphemistically calls it, a "sanction." The victim will be one of three men attempting a dangerous ascent of the Eiger, a beautiful but punishing mountain range in Swiss Alps. While Hemlock is an experienced mountaineer and willing to make the climb, he's troubled to discover that he does not know which of the other three men scaling the Eiger is his true target. The supporting cast includes George Kennedy and Jack Cassidy; the latter earned enthusiastic reviews for his over-the-top performance as a flamboyantly gay secret agent. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      I have always enjoyed this movie, even when I was a kid. It had been several years since I had watched this movie so I really enjoyed it. The scenes of climbing in Monument Valley were incredible since I have vacationed there the last couple of years. You would not be disappointed with this movie.

      I really enjoyed this movie! The climbing scenes were spectacular, especially the ones in Monument Valley! I have vacationed there the last three years so it was really neat to see the scenery where I have been.
