The Film: Widely regarded as one of Orson Welles’s best pictures, Touch of Evil was the last great film noir of the classic era of noir films, notable at the time upsetting ‘50s sensibilities with controversial themes including racism, sexual ambiguity, drugs, and police corruption.
When a car bomb explodes on the American side of the U.S./Mexico border, Mexican drug enforcement agent Miguel Vargas (Charlton Heston) begins his investigation along with American police captain Hank Quinlan (Orson Welles). When Vargas begins to suspect that Quinlan and his shady partner, Menzies (Joseph Calleia), are planting evidence to frame an innocent man, his investigations into their possible corruption quickly put himself and his new bride, Susie (Janet Leigh), in jeopardy. Supporting cast and cameos include Akim Tamiroff, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Dennis Weaver, Mercedes McCambridge, Joseph Cotton, and Marlene Dietrich. Scored by Henry Mancini.
