Elevator to the Gallows
Directed by Louis Malle • 1958 • France
In his mesmerizing debut feature, twenty-four-year-old director Louis Malle brought together the beauty of Jeanne Moreau, the camerawork 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 is a richly atmospheric thriller of murder and mistaken identity unfolding over one restless Parisian night.
