Abstract

The essay traces the evolution of "Touch of Evil" through its four major stages: an original novel by Robert Wade and William Miller, a screenplay by Paul Monash, a screenplay by Orson Welles, and the film itself. It attempts to clarify the extent of Welles's indebtedness to his previous sources and the ways in which he reshaped that material to make it his own.
