Chic Scott really needs no introduction, being an honorary member of many a mountain club, a multi-award winner for his writing. Over 50 years of adventure he has climbed and skied around the world, organized clubs and foundations,written books and worked as a mountain guide! This evening’s presentation will focus on his experience working with the crew on the filming of “The Eiger Sanction”.
During the summer of 1974 Chic spent 7 weeks working with Clint Eastwood, Dougal Haston and Hamish McInnes filming The Eiger Sanction. In this presentation Chic takes a look behind the scenes at the personalities, the stunts, the adventure and the tragedy. Then we watch some of the footage with a running commentary on the actors and the action. Come along, February 21st, it should be a fascinating evening!
