In which film did Marlene Dietrich tell a cop to "lay off those candy bars"?
In the 1958 film "Touch of Evil", Marlene Dietrich (Tanya) told a cop (Orson Welles as police Captain Hank Quinlan) to "lay off those candy bars". She said that she didn't initially recognize him.
When a car bomb explodes on the American side of the U.S./Mexico border, Mexican drug enforcement agent Miguel Vargas (Charlton Heston) begins an investigation, along with American police Captain Hank Quinlan (Welles). When Vargas begins to suspect that Quinlan and his shady partner, Menzies (Joseph Calleia), are planting evidence to frame an innocent man, his investigations into their possible corruption quickly put himself and his new bride, Susie (Janet Leigh), in jeopardy. These are key elements in the plot of the film "Touch of Evil".
"Touch of Evil" is a film that was written, directed, and co-stars Orson Welles. The screenplay was loosely based on the novel 'Badge of Evil' by Whit Masterson. It was produced by Albert Zugsmith and distributed by Universal-International Pictures. According to Leonard Maltin’s Classic Movie Guide, "Touch of Evil" is “a stylistic masterpiece!” It continues to stand up to the test of time!"
