Movie Info

When the aunt of Edna Wallace (Jean Wallace) is murdered, Inspector Jules Maigret (Charles Laughton) is brought into the case. Initial suspicion is thrown on a knife sharpener (Burgess Meredith), but Maigret soon takes notice of a student, Johann Radek (Franchot Tone), who keeps goading the police. Unfortunately, there is no evidence against Radek. The psychological games between Maigret and Radek escalate as the police narrow in on the killer, leading to a harrowing chase across Paris.

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.
