Snowbound (1948)

Film details


Thriller. Film director (and intelligence agent) Bob Engles spots his old fellow-soldier Neil Blair working as a film extra, and gives him a special job to do instead. Posing as a scriptwriter, Blair is to stay in a ski lodge in the Dolomites and monitor the comings and goings of its other residents. This he does, with increasing peril to life and limb, as seven mysterious people, many of whom seem to know each other, gather in the lodge. It soon becomes clear that they are all searching for something they believe is buried in the immediate vicinity.
