Summary
  • Welles is a corrupt police official in a Mexican border town scheming to destroy a narcotics agent and his wife
  • Three versions of the film in one package. The restored version, re-edited in 1998, is the definitive cut of the film restored to Orson Welles' vision based on his detailed 58-page memo to the studio. The theatrical version is the original version of the film seen by U.S. audiences when it was released in theaters in 1958. The preview version was created prior to the theatrical version. This cut of the film incorporates some of Orson Welles' requests and was discovered by Universal in 1967
