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.

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.
