"TOUCH OF EVIL" (1958) new DVD

9 posts in this topic

The subject came up in another thread and I was hoping there'd be enough people interested in the new DVD of *Touch of Evil* to merit its own thread. I haven't had a chance to watch it yet but I did read a pretty promising review in Variety - here is a link if anyone's interested:

(_MINOR SPOILERS_)

 

It sounds like one of the major differences between the alternate versions of the movie has to do with the opening credits - and I happen to think the opening shot works best without the on-screen credits.

 

I've heard some encouraging things about the Rosenbaum audio commentary so I am definitely looking forward to hearing that in its entirety. B-)

I agree with you. And this is what Orson wanted it as well...but it was a battle he lost.

I got the chance to tape the re cut of this film and it's documentary on the re cut........it makes for an entirely different film. Might have to get the DVD.
