In her 20s, she was already one of the leading actresses in the theatre. After 1949, Moreau started to appear in films with small parts. After appearing in several successful films, she started to work with the emerging generation of French film-makers. She starred in Elevator to the Gallows in 1958 with co-star Maurice Ronet, a French crime film directed by Louis Malle; it was about illicit lovers whose murder plot starts to untangle because of a malfunctioning elevator.
