Please join us on Sunday, August 26 at 2 p.m. for Orson Welles' Touch of Evil (1958, 108 min) on the sixth floor of the Mid-Manhattan Library.
Film Noir is part of Mystery Summer and a full schedule is available online at: bit.ly/mysterysummer. All screenings are FREE and seating is first-come, first-served.
Description: Touch of Evil is a 1958 American crime thriller film, written, directed by, and co-starring Orson Welles. The screenplay was loosely based on the novel Badge of Evil by Whit Masterson.
"It is a testament to Welles' genius that he was able to turn a piece of pulp literature into such a disturbing, sophisticated and, above all, entertaining study of depravity."
