RARA-AVIS: RE: Touch of Evil

I thought Heston was fine in the role. But, even if you disagree, as Welles himself pointed out, Heston's star power was the reason the movie got made, and it was only by his insistence that Welles got to direct it.

But, as far as Touch of Evil goes, as someone else commented, Heston is a big pill to swallow. I never believed him for a minute. I've seen the movie a couple of times and he spoils it for me.
