In "Cliffhanger," Sylvester Stallone plays a mountain rescue ranger who loses his climbing mojo after a woman he was trying to save falls to her death. But when a group of goons forces him to guide them through the rugged terrain to recover a suitcase full of stolen cash, he must find the will to climb again.

Full of vertigo-inducing shots of bodies dangling precipitously off cliffs, the 1993 movie was one of the biggest hits of Stallone's career. It earned a worldwide box office gross of $255 million, or $408 million today.
