ORSON WELLES: THE STUDIO YEARS AND BEYOND
Welles Noir Double Feature!
TOUCH OF EVIL / THE LADY FROM SHANGHAI

Writer F.X. Feeney has more to say about Orson Welles in our blog here.

Introduction by F.X. Feeney.
TOUCH OF EVIL
1958, Universal, 111 min, USA, Dir: Orson Welles

Orson Welles’ hallucinatory, off-kilter masterwork stars Charlton Heston in one of his finest performances as a Mexican policeman trapped on the wrong side of the border, where a corpulent, corrupt cop (Welles) tries to stop him from digging into the past. Janet Leigh co-stars as Heston’s new wife, menaced by leather-clad Mercedes McCambridge and her gang of juvenile delinquents. Co-starring Akim Tamiroff, Marlene Dietrich, Joseph Calleia.


THE LADY FROM SHANGHAI
1948, Sony Repertory, 87 min, USA, Dir: Orson Welles

The camera is the star in one of director Orson Welles’ most phantasmagorical films, a dazzling noir thriller about a seaman, a crippled lawyer and his homicidal wife pursuing one another through a "bright, guilty world" of infidelity, deception and murder. The hall-of-mirrors climax is riveting. With Orson Welles, Rita Hayworth and Everett Sloane.
