Two masterpieces from 1958. Touch Of Evil is excellent film-noir but Vertigo is in a league of its own. Vertigo is the better film.

Vertigo is far more interesting...

Touch of Evil is a great film, but it can't touch Vertigo.

Vertigo is so deep and brilliantly acted and directed EVIL is great but I love Vertigo way more.

What an embarrassment of riches for cinema in the 1950's! Our current decade, so far as I know, has yet to produce a single film that even approaches these two. And yet both of these films came out in the same year! I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE Vertigo... but I have to give Touch of Evil the nod. By a nanometer.

I give Touch of Evil the nod...

I appreciated Touch of Evil, but Vertigo blew me away. Vertigo wins.

TOE is awesome, but I have yet to encounter a film that had me transfixed like Vertigo.

i love touch of evil, but vertigo is hitchcock's masterpiece

2 masterpieces from 1958! Vertigo still wins pretty easily though.
