Heston as a Mexican federal narcotics cop–in brownface, but (mercifully) with no accent–married to blond gringa Janet Leigh, the pair of them falling foul of the damndest collection of freaky character actors (including Welles in a fat suit) you ever did see. Dennis Weaver as the NIght Man is worth the price of admission, and that’s without mentioning Mercedes McCambridge as a butch biker…
