  So this movie started off originally as the 1955 Japanese film JIN YUKI MAN. It was director Inoshiro Honda's follow-up to GODZILLA and is basically a variation on KING KONG. The monster here is a large bigfoot/ape/abominable snowman creature who along with his son comes into contact with a couple of skiers resulting in some deadly encounters. Just like with that film when it was brought to America it was re-edited to include a bunch of scenes with American actors(most notably John Carradine). The bits off original movie that are left, about a third of the original film, are voiced-over by Mr. Carradine which gives everything a weird silent movie vibe that really drags things down. Luckily all the monster mayhem is on view and at just a little over an hour(the Japanese film is 94 minutes long) it moves briskly enough. 

 The original version apparently is not something the Japanese are very fond of due to how it depicts the natives and it hasn't been released on any home video format there.
