Jazz and Jeanne Moreau
April 18, 2008
Here's a brief clip from "Elevator to the Gallows," Louis Malle 's directorial debut (1958). It's the famous scene with the lovely Jeanne Moreau walking the streets of Paris in search of her lover, Julien, who's stuck in an elevator in the office building where he works because he had to go back and cover the tracks of his murder, except that the night watchman turned it off because - well, you really have to see the film to get all the details. This is just one of the classic films that'll be screened as part of "Jazz Score," a multi-media exhibit that kicks off this week at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC. You can hear my talk with the co-curators when you go here. - David Cruz
