It is difficult to understand why Across the Bridge, which features a performance by Rod Steiger that ranks close to his work in The Pawnbreaker, should be so rare. For filmmaker, legendary teacher, author and inventor Michael Rabiger, Across the Bridge was one of his first screen credits. Based on a book by Graham Greene, its stars Steiger as a German-born British industrialist accused of embezzlement. On the run from Scotland Yard , trying to escape to Mexico, he switches identity as he faces the law. The film is a brilliant psychological thriller, made at the apex of British film studio production. Michael Rabiger is Professor Emeritus at Columbia College, the director of documentaries for the BBC and independently, and the author of the worldwide best-selling books, Directing: Film Techniques and Aesthetics, Directing the Documentary and Developing Story Ideas.
