Touch of Evil (1958)

  • Trustees Theatre 216 East Broughton Street Savannah, GA, 31401 United States

Celebrate Orson Welles' 101st birthday in true noir style! One of his greatest films, Touch of Evil, written, directed and co-starring Welles, is one of the last true noir films of the genre's classic era. Featuring Charlton Heston, Janet Leigh, and a late appearance by Marlene Dietrich, Touch of Evil is a stark, perverse story of murder, kidnapping, and police corruption in a Mexican border town. Followed by a post show Q&A that will most definitely discuss the three minute long opening tracking shot widely considered one of the greatest long takes in cinema history. Not to be missed!
