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."
