"Touch of Evil" 1958 and 1998 Director's cut is based on the 1956 novel Badge of Evil. Orson Welles directed the movie, rewrote parts of the script, and played Hank Quinlan the corrupt and double-crossing Police Captain from Los Robles a U.S. border town. Car bomb deaths, drug smuggling, racial tensions, kidnapping, and the ultimate betrayal of a longtime friendship are woven into this mesmerizing tale as only Welles could tell it.

Charlton Heston is Ramon Vargas high-ranking member of Mexican law enforcement, Janet Leigh as Susan Vargas the newly wed bride, and Joseph Calleia, in a career-defining role, as Police Officer Pete Menzies. There are excellent performances from many including Akim Tamiroff as Joe Grandi, Marlene Dietrich as Tanya, and Dennis Weaver as the Night Manager. Enjoy!
