Johann Radek (Franchot Tone) is an impoverished Parisian medical student who overhears Bill Kirby (Robert Hutton) saying that he wished somebody would murder his wealthy aunt so that he could collect the inheritance. Radek decides to kill the old lady and her maid but is surprised by an incredibly short-sighted burglar, Heurtin (Burgess Meredith). When Heurtin stumbles over the dead body he unwittingly incriminates himself and becomes the focal point of the police investigation. Inspector Maigret (Charles Laughton) has to solve one of his most infamous cases as he pursues the murderer across the rooftops and streets of Paris. As the two protagonists play a deadly game of cat and mouse, Maigret confronts his suspect in a stunning climax on top of the Eiffel Tower.

Watch the Preview!



When Nazi troops seize his town, timid schoolmaster Albert Lory (Charles Laughton) submits to his new masters, although he cannot help but be inspired by the defiance of many of his fellow citizens. Then Albert is hauled before a tribunal, falsely accused of murder. Standing alone against the power of the Third Reich, this seemingly weak man then reveals an invincible soul. Three of cinema's most acclaimed talents -- Laughton, director Jean Renoir (Grand Illusion) and screenwriter Dudley Nichols (Stagecoach) -- unite for this moving portrait of the heroism of everyday men and women. The stellar cast includes Maureen O'Hara (Laughton's protégée and his The Hunchback of Notre Dame costar) as the colleague he secretly loves, George Sanders as a covert collaborator, and Walter Slezak as a wily Nazi officer who holds Albert's fate in his hands. "A courageous film...a story cleanly and maturely told" (Bosley Crowther, The New York Times).

Watch the Promo!



This character study joins the painter at the height of his fame in 1642, when his adored wife suddenly dies and his work takes a dark, sardonic turn that offends his patrons. By 1656, he is bankrupt but consoles himself with the company of pretty maid Hendrickje, whom he's unable to marry. Their relationship brings ostracism but also some measure of happiness. The final scenes find him in his last year, 1669, physically enfeebled but his spirit undimmed. Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>
