Orson Welles returns to Hollywood and instead of looking like a dashing knight, he is a very gross overweight racist cop. It wasn’t how the audiences remembered him, but years later Touch of Evil remains one of his most memorable films. It is a noir film set on the Mexican border about the fallout of a bomb explosion. The guys talk about its iconic tracking shot, the fact that Charlton Heston plays a Mexican and how disgusting this world is.
