Critic Reviews for The Man on the Eiffel Tower

All Critics (2)

Using the same novel that A Man's Neck employed, this troubled U.S. production is inferior in every manner, from the uneven acting by the supporting cast to the use of a dummy falling off the Eiffel Tower, yet the tale is never less than intriguing.

Somehow comes together as a fascinating, psychological noir package.

Audience Reviews for The Man on the Eiffel Tower

What a cast! Laughton makes a great Maigret and the story is very faithful to the book by Simenon on which the film was based. There is a wonderful fleeting scene in the Left Bank cafe featured in the movie where an existentialist guru is holding court. The dress and attitude of his followers is right out of a Doisneau photo. The film captures Paris of that era.
