RARA-AVIS: Touch of Evil

I just saw this movie for the first time last night. Guess it wasn't exactly like the original, director's cut or some such nonsense. Loved Orson Welles. Who was the good-looking cantina girl, sorta opposite Orson? It was good but I didn't think it was great. I thought the part where Vargas's wife was stuck at the motel was awkward and less than convincing. My guess is that some of those scenes might have been added.

I was amused when Janet Leigh called the Mexican gangster a "Little Caesar" at the beginning, a movie I just watched a few days ago.

I understand this movie comes near the end of the
"classic" noir movies. I checked the imdb site to make sure the movie was on-topic. Evidently it is adapted from a book by Whit Masterson by the same name.
