I've seen the director's version of Touch of Evil several times, once on the big screen after the restoration. It has so many layers, I always find something new. After seeing it this time, I wondered how strange it is that Suzy is married to a brown skinned Mexican yet treats the other Mexican-Americans in the story with such contempt. She calls a brown skinned stranger Pancho and is uniformly rude to the Grandi relatives before she knows they are villains. She is so racist it is unsurprising they torture her with such pleasure. In these old movies I always wonder if the movie maker is showing us racism or being racist. I suspect Welles was showing us racism because he could have easily let Heston remain white. Everything about the movie shows Heston as a hero, his tall shadow, how he catches his car keys like Jim Edmonds. I'd like other members' take on the race issue in this movie.
