TOUCH OF EVIL
1958, Universal, 111 min, USA, Dir: Orson Welles

This hallucinatory, off-kilter masterwork features Charlton Heston in one of his finest performances, as a Mexican cop on the wrong side of the border, pitted against a grotesque sheriff (Welles) whose badge hides a heart of vile corruption. Janet Leigh co-stars as Heston’s bride, menaced by leather-clad Mercedes McCambridge and her gang of juvenile delinquents. Co-starring Akim Tamiroff, Marlene Dietrich and Joseph Calleia.


1998 re-release version. | Screening format: DCP
