Give the Five Stars to a great Spencer Tracy performance. He plays a retired Swiss mountain climber. In "The Mountain" Spencer Tracy plays the role as a man who knows his limitations with age. He has a brother in Robert Wagner, who also climbs, but does not have good intentions. He is also miscast, because Spencer Tracy was 57 years old when he made "The Mountain" and Robert Wagner was in his early twenties. The two are not a good match on film. For me, watching Spencer Tracy play another fine role is worth putting up with a directors poor choice in Robert Wagner. His acting is fine, he just can't look like the brother of Spencer Tracy.

Spencer Tracy creates a sympathetic character, but the relationship, and, indeed, the whole situation, aren't very believeable.
