Actor Abner Biberman specialized in unpleasant characters; when he turned director in the mid-1950s, he specialized in unpleasant subjects. The Looters is a marked-down variation of the Spencer Tracy film The Mountain. When a plane crashes on Pike's Peak, a group of mercenaries agree to search for survivors. The real motivation of some members of the rescue party is to strip the plane of all valuables, and to dispose of awkward witnesses. But a handful of the crash survivors also have looting on their minds, leading to a bloody clash in the snowy crags.
