Directed by Orson Welles | 1958

With Charlton Heston, Janet Leigh, Orson Welles, Akim Tamiroff, Joseph Calleia

“One of the greatest movies ever made in America…”
—Chicago Tribune

Once you get past Heston playing a Mexican, the delights of this thriller set in a small border town are too numerous to mention: the imitated but never equaled opening shot, the delirious sleaziness of the setting, Dietrich as a gypsy madam, and at the center of it all, Welles in a show-stopping performance as the monstrously corrupt Hank Quinlan. Of her performance, Dietrich later claimed, “I think I never said a line as well as the last line in Touch of Evil.”
