Film Series: Touch of Evil

1958. USA. Dir: Orson Welles. With Charlton Heston. 111 min. 35mm print.


When a bomb goes o on the U.S. side of the Mexican border, the case becomes the obsession of Welles’ corpulent cor- rupt cop and the border agent who failed to stop it (Heston, lamentably cast as Mexican). is vicious tale of intrigue and suspense is one of the last great examples of classic film noir – do not miss the famously virtuosic opening shot.
