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.


ELEVATOR TO THE GALLOWS
ASCENSEUR POUR L’ECHAFAUD
1958, Rialto Pictures, 91 min, France, Dir: Louis Malle

“I knew I loved you, but I thought only of myself,” murmurs gorgeous Jeanne Moreau - after setting in motion a murderous plot involving her fat-cat husband, a young intelligence officer (Maurice Ronet) and some of the darkest twists and turns in French cinema. Made when Malle was only 25 years old, this film helped jump-start the French New Wave. The dazzling cinematography of Henri Decaë (who also shot THE 400 BLOWS) is enhanced by Miles Davis’ haunting jazz score.
