In his mesmerizing debut feature film, twenty-four-year-old director Louis Malle brought together the beauty of Jeanne Moreau, the camera work of Henri Decaë, and a now legendary score by Miles Davis. A touchstone of the careers of both its star and director, Elevator To The Gallows (Ascenseur Pour l'échafaud) is a richly atmospheric thriller of murder and mistaken identity unfolding over one restless Parisian night.
