|Review Summary and Plot Commentary about Touch of Evil|
|TOUCH OF EVIL was directed in 1958 by Orson Welles. The action takes place at the american-mexican border. Charlton Heston is an important mexican police officer who has just married the blonde Janet Leigh. He gets involved, as a witness, in a murder case conducted by long-time police officer Hank Quinlan played by Orson Welles. But things are not as simple as they seem to be.
A masterpiece and a classic.
