Janet Leigh and Touch of Evil


I was flipping channels and Janet Leigh was on in that border based crime noir movie Touch of Evil (it was on TCM). Definitely worth watching again (beyond Janet Leigh's acting and Orson Welles' directing) only to see Charlton Heston describe the Mexican-USA border.

Rotten Tomatoes: Touch of Evil Wells got into it with the studio and was banned from editing the film in its original 1958 release. It has been released since, including one based on Welles' editing notes.

Variety: Touch of Evil re-released for Orson Welles' 100th Birthday









Marlene Dietrich gives limited but scene stealing performance in this film
