Critic Reviews for The Man on the Eiffel Tower
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.
Audience Reviews for The Man on the Eiffel Tower
"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.
