Orson Welles writes, directs and stars in this classic film noir. Set in a hellish Mexican border town, Charlton Heston stars as Mike Vargas, a self-righteous narcotics officer who goes up against the monumental Captain Hank Quinlan (Welles), an old-time detective who fabricates evidence in order to close a case based on his gut instinct. After an American businessman is killed by a car bomb, Vargas abandons his honeymoon to investigate. When he discovers the corrupt Quinlan planting evidence, Vargas decides to delve further into the captain's previous cases but he soon finds out first-hand the extreme lengths Quinlan will go to to preserve his reputation.
