It's uncanny just how much Charlton Heston looks and sounds like a real Mexican. He's a chameleon, I tell you!

Good Orson Welles movie but is slightly overrated. I can't get past how unrealistic Janet Leigh's character is when she seamlessly decides to go along with a random Mexican on the street that she has never met before, even after Heston warns her how this area is sketchy. Gets better as it goes on though.

There is some legendary cinematography in this movie. Masterclass directing, and a couple of great performances were also some highlights. The story was a little lacking though, and this movie seemed like it was about half an hour too long.
