Noir Canon: Sleaze and corruption in a Mexican border town are played to the max in this Welles classic. The great director’s masterpiece of bad juju follows a honeymooning Mexican D.A. (Heston) and his Anglo wife (Leigh) as they run afoul of the hulking, amoral gringo cop Hank Quinlan (Welles). Read a full review of Touch of Evil.
