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.

MR. ARKADIN
CONFIDENTIAL REPORT
1955, Janus Films, 99 min, USA, Dir: Orson Welles

A ruthless financier (Welles) hires a sleazy young cigarette smuggler to write a "confidential report" on his past, hoping to erase the last traces of his infamy so that his beloved daughter will never learn the truth about him. Welles decks out this mock-tragic "chronicle of a death foretold" with down-and-dirty rococo effects and tall tales, including that epitome of cynicism, the fable about the frog and the scorpion.
