TOUCH OF EVIL
(1958) Directed by ORSON WELLES Starring CHARLTON HESTON ORSON WELLES JANET LEIGH . This baroque nightmare of a south-of-the-border mystery is considered to be one of the great movies of Orson Welles, who both directed and starred in it. On honeymoon with his new bride, Susan (Janet Leigh), Mexican-born policeman Mike Vargas (Charlton Heston) agrees to investigate a bomb explosion. In so doing, he incurs the wrath of local police chief Hank Quinlan (Welles), a corrupt, bullying behemoth with a perfect arrest record. "Touch of Evil" is simply a masterpiece of film noir from Orson Welles, seen here uncut and restored in the way Welles intended it to be seen."  Showing THU JUL 20 at 7:30PM  (Admission $6)
