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.

    Comments about this product:

    This film is in French with English subtitles. First came across this movie during the TCM Summer of Darkness film festival. Very captivating and knew it needed to be part of my collection. It is beautifully filmed with a great jazz score by Miles Davis.
