Guest Co-Host: Jedidiah Ayres
Noirvember continues as we consider Louis Malle's debut feature film, Elevator to the Gallows AKA Ascenseur pour l'échafaud, which stars Jeanne Moreau as Florence and Maurice Ronet as Julien. Shot in beautiful black and white and featuring a legendary improved jazz score by the great Miles Davis, Elevator to the Gallows questions the nature of self, love, and life as only Louis Malle could.
Our guests this week include Nathan Southern, author of The Films of Louis Malle: A Critical Analysis and Jack Chambers, author of Milestones: The Music And Times Of Miles Davis. Our guest co-host, Jedidiah Ayres, is a writer for page and screen.
