Working in a remote village in the Himalayas, scientist John Rollason (Peter Cushing) and his wife Helen (Maureen Connell),  study rare mountain plants. But his real desire is to find the Yeti, his opportunity comes with the arrival of an American named Tom Friend (Forrest Tucker). Friend leads an expedition to find the elusive Yeti and enlists Rollason  to help over his wife’s objections. Friend’s  motives are questionable and it leads to problems on the mountain.

The movie’s special effects are not strong, as a mater of fact they are laughable at times, but the story is solid.  The film points out just what man should really fear and in this case it’s not the Yeti

“They are in danger, all of them, from their own actions.”

Enjoyed this film as a teen, but it’s not scary by today’s standards—-07/10
