     As we are well in our way into the month of October, it is high time I bring out Vincent Price. No matter what circumstance, Vincent Price always keeps his cool and one heck of a sexy voice. This movie was made in 3-D. Which makes sense because throughout the movie, you will notice a lot of action that seems a little too much if you get my drift. But at the same time, there is the perfect amount of action, and the perfect amount of Vincent, and the perfect amount of snow. I love snow, always have. And I always love seeing snow, especially in classic movies. This movie is in color, but the snow is just right!

     Where do you go if you witness a mob killing in New York? To a place nobody will find you. Louise Graham (Piper Laurie) finds the perfect place, Montana. A place with a lot of outside activity. She stays at Glacier National Park Hotel, which is now called Glacier Park Lodge. And she cannot be found. At least for a while. Matt Hallett (Victor Mature) finds out that Louise has been recognized by the mobster and is there to help. Glacier National Park is very safe. There is even a park ranger to greet you at the gate to get in. When Chief Ranger Joe Parker (William Bendix, who you may recognize from Hitchcock's Lifeboat) notices that Matt owns a gun, Joe is a little skepticle about Matt staying there. Especially since they are hiding a witness. Matt does meet Louise and likes her, a lot. And becomes friends with Paul Adams (Vincent Price), who is a very friendly man. Who is the mob killer? Are there more than one? Is Matt Hallett to be trusted? Only one way to find out!!! And with the snowy background, and actors like these, you can't go wrong with Dangerous Mission. And you may even feel as though you are on vacation.
