Movie Info

This film pits Georges Simenon's analytical Inspector Maigret against a wily murderer. We know virtually from the outset that the guilty party is Franchot Tone, a psychotic with delusions of grandeur. Maigret suspects Tone, but without solid proof he must suffer the taunting and baiting of the beyond-the-law killer.

Audience Reviews for The Man on the Eiffel Tower

  • Nov 19, 2018
    "A vacation in Paris? And get paid for it? You bet!" One gets the definite impression that there is the underlying motive behind this, but perhaps that's a good thing, as a love for the City of Lights permeates the entire effort. Burgess Meredith directs (?!?) this interesting chase film as Charles Laughton, a Parisian policeman, must match wits against an international murderer, Franchot Tone. Doubly interesting is how the creators do a story in France w/o a word of French in the whole thing. There are nods to Hitchcock and Welles therein, but if only taken for the unique views of Paris it would still be worth your time.
