TOUCH OF GENIUS: ORSON WELLES AT 100
Double Feature! Book Signing With F.X. Feeney!
TOUCH OF EVIL / MAGICIAN: THE ASTONISHING LIFE AND WORK OF ORSON WELLES

Film historian F.X. Feeney will introduce the program and will sign copies of his new book Orson Welles: Power, Heart, And Soul at 7pm in the lobby, and at intermission.

TOUCH OF EVIL
1958, Universal, 111 min, USA, Dir: Orson Welles

Orson Welles’ hallucinatory, off-kilter masterwork stars Charlton Heston in one of his finest performances as a Mexican policeman trapped on the wrong side of the border, where a corpulent, corrupt cop (Welles) tries to stop him from digging into the past. Janet Leigh co-stars as Heston’s new wife, menaced by leather-clad Mercedes McCambridge and her gang of juvenile delinquents. Co-starring Akim Tamiroff, Marlene Dietrich, Joseph Calleia.


MAGICIAN: THE ASTONISHING LIFE AND WORKS OF ORSON WELLES
2014, Cohen Media, 94 min, USA, Dir: Chuck Workman

Orson Welles’ body of work - on stage, radio and movie screens – is among the most tantalizing of the 20th century, filled with both stunning achievements and frustrating setbacks. Acclaimed documentarian Chuck Workman tells the story of the legendary director using clips from virtually all of Welles’ films and interviews with friends, colleagues and (in archival footage) the man himself.
