THE BRIBE

(1949, Robert Z. Leonard) It’s a 10 grand offer from Laughton’s seedy waterfront fixer J.J. Bealer to federal agent Robert Taylor to drop his investigation of a Central American arms surplus racket… and his romance with Ava Gardner! Noir sleeper featuring Vincent Price and a pyrotechnic finale. Approx. 98 min. 35mm.

THE MAN ON THE EIFFEL TOWER

(1950, Burgess Meredith) Laughton’s Inspector Maigret thinks murder suspect Burgess Meredith’s is just a patsy, and then it’s a cat and mouse game with taunting Franchot Tone, climaxed by hair-raising stunts on a location-shot Tower. First color and English adaptation from Georges Simenon’s great series, and Laughton’s first (uncredited) direction (the opening and close). Approx. 97 min. 35mm print courtesy UCLA Film & Television Archive.
