    Description

    Touch of Evil (Universal International, 1958). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Orson Welles's muscular direction made this bordertown film noir one of the most memorable pictures of the 1950s. The film dealt with many "taboo" topics including interracial marriages, gangs, drugs, political murders, and corrupt cops. Charlton Heston portrays a Mexican narcotics officer and Janet Leigh is his wife. Welles is the crooked cop and Marlene Dietrich plays his former flame, the local madam. Hard-hitting and gritty, the posters on this title are very collectible. This unrestored example has fold wear, stains in the top and bottom borders, a chip out of the top right corner, small nick in the bottom right corner, extra folds on the right and left sides, and a small tear (repaired with tape on the reverse) on the right side. The poster retains a fresh appearance with vibrant colors and good clarity. Fine+.
