Touch of Evil

If you have a spare 3 minutes and 30 seconds, have a ganders at this opening sequence from Orson Welles' 1958 film 'Touch of Evil'. When I say sequence, I actually mean 'shot', because this whole thing was done in one go on a crane. Might not seem so cool now, but it was the first of it's kind.

Let's ignore what a sleazebag Clark Gable is.

I'm loving Orson Welles at the moment. The man was a genius.
