A colorful, dramatic and heart-catching film which tells the story of the British expedition which in 1953 finally conquered the hitherto unconquerable and reached the top-most peak of the highest mountain in the world – Mount Everest. An unforgettable achievement, in which the excitement mounts with the altitude, has made an unforgettable film.
- " As one expected, this film is good. It has been most skilfully edited and is often intensely moving. " – MFB Critics (Monthly Film Bulletin)
- " Except that it doesn't always satisfy normal curiosity about the daily details of the expedition, this is a superb documentary record in Technicolor of last year's Coronation Week ascent of the world's highest mountain. " – Clyde Gilmour (Maclean's Magazine)
