Product Description

Orson Welles writes, directs and stars in this classic film noir. Set in a hellish Mexican border town, Charlton Heston stars as Mike Vargas, a self-righteous narcotics officer who goes up against the monumental Captain Hank Quinlan (Welles), an old-time detective who fabricates evidence in order to close a case based on his gut instinct. After an American businessman is killed by a car bomb, Vargas abandons his honeymoon to investigate. When he discovers the corrupt Quinlan planting evidence, Vargas decides to delve further into the captain's previous cases but he soon finds out first-hand the extreme lengths Quinlan will go to to preserve his reputation.

From Amazon.co.uk

Considered by many to be the greatest B movie ever made, the original-release version of Orson Welles's film noir masterpiece Touch of Evil was, ironically, never intended as a B movie at all--it merely suffered that fate after it was taken away from writer-director Welles, then reedited and released in 1958 as the second half of a double feature. Time and critical acclaim would eventually elevate the film to classic status (and Welles's original vision was meticulously followed for the film's 1998 restoration), but for four decades this original version stood as a testament to Welles's directorial genius. From its astonishing, miraculously choreographed opening shot (lasting over three minutes) to Marlene Dietrich's classic final line of dialogue, this sordid tale of murder and police corruption is like a valentine for the cinematic medium, with Welles as its love-struck suitor. As the corpulent cop who may be involved in a border-town murder, Welles faces opposition from a narcotics officer (Charlton Heston) whose wife (Janet Leigh) is abducted and held as the pawn in a struggle between Heston's quest for truth and Welles's control of carefully hidden secrets. The twisting plot is wildly entertaining (even though it's harder to follow in this original version), but even greater pleasure is found in the pulpy dialogue and the sheer exuberance of the dazzling directorial style. --Jeff Shannon
