A poorly conceived murder mystery gets in the way of some terrific views of the Swiss Alps. Ruhmann plays the man behind the investigation of the murder of a young girl in the mountains. Most evidence seems to point to Simon, the poor peddler who happened upon the girl. Hounded by authorities, Simon eventually kills himself. Ruhmann's investigation persists and he soon finds the real killer. Friedrich Durrenmatt's novel Das Versprechen ("The Pledge")was filmed again as COLD LIGHT OF DAY (1996) and THE PLEDGE (2001). This film features an oddly lighthearted mood which is definitely at odds with the story.
