Touch of Evil

Director: Orson Welles Run Time: 111 min. Format: 35mm Release Year: 1958

Starring: Akim Tamiroff, Charlton Heston, Janet Leigh, Joseph Calleia, Orson Welles

Orson Welles is a beast in this (kinda later) masterpiece. A stunning opening crane shot opens up the sweaty noir world Charlton Heston and Janet Leigh are trapped in. On the U.S./Mexico border a shady plot gets unveiled, patsies get framed and guns get drawn. It’s the good cut, don’t worry.
