I figure some of out Italian/German members may recognize this one:

Looking for the title to a WW I flick I saw on on NYC Channel 13 back in the sixties. Plot as follows:

Two climbing friends, one Italian, one Austrian enjoy the mountains near their village, which I believe was named Colallto. Cut to WW I and the two are soldiers on opposite sides. The Italians are holding a strong position on the mountain near the town. The Austrians are digging a tunnel under the Italian position to lay a mine. The Italian friend volunteers to go down to the village to get info on the mine. After several misadventures, he gets back to the Italian lines just in time to warn his comrades to retreat. The Austrian mine is blown, the Italians return to their trenches and repel the attack. Cut to after the war and the two friends are re-united climbing the same mountain.

I seem to recall this one was filmed in the Italian Alps between the two world wars. TIA.
