    Thank you for your review, though, I agree and then disagree to a certain extent with some of it.:) My thoughts on this Blu-ray are here. I never did get around to the audio commentary which I'll try to do in the near future since you kind of slammed that too.

    Thanks for the review. Not a great film although Gloria Grahame is good (as always). Sterling Hayden is wooden (as usual). Interesting point about Touch of Evil, i agree that it is a 'B' film and that 'A' list stars do not an 'A' picture make.

    When I watched this disc few weeks ago, I immediately noticed the similarity in the presentation of the border town at night in Naked Alibi and Touch Of Evil. My conclusion was different. It seems obvious to me that Orson Welles was, at least, enormously influenced by suggestions from his co-workers as to how to shoot those scenes.

    I think Russell Metty was a bit more than just a journeyman cinematographer.

    Robin, I agree about Metty, he was a great photographer. He was the best at Universal.
