Touch of Evil | 1958
Clip Name: Framed
Well, I was beginning to think we'd lost you for good, amigo.
I had a phone call to make.
They've got me measured for the fall guy.
Now, just a minute.
Sure, I'm the fortune hunter who hypnotized Marcia...
who made her kill her father for his money.
If I had that kind of power, I wouldn't be where I am today, believe me.
You mean you don't care about the money?
Why should I lie?
If it hadn't been for the money, I wouldn't have given her a tumble.
But I told her that right at the beginning, but still she wanted...
Why bother? You wouldn't believe it.
Try me. I'm a good listener.
Well, instead of the man chasing the girl, suppose she was the one.
Suppose she asked him to marry her. What should he do?
Draw himself up and say, " No, my dear, you and I...
could never be happy together because of your money. "
What would you do, Vargas?
The question is: What did you do?
Yeah, what did you do, boy?
Well, you know what I did, Captain Quinlan.
I know. I was asking you.
Marcia and I made a bomb.
That's right, you made a bomb.
And we blew up her father, of course!
Don't you see, you don't help yourself by treating this as a joke?
Are you finished? Anything more you wanna say, Vargas?
Oh, good, well, Pete, since you're here,
I wish you'd search the place.
I'm, uh, too tired to go on with it.
Sanchez's desk has been looked into.
Take the bedroom and the bathroom.
I haven't been very thorough.
how long do I have to sit here?
I wasn't breaking no laws. I was just... I don't even know these people.
You know Vargas, don't you?
Uncle Joe Grandi. Another Grandi.
Yeah, you nabbed his brother on a narcotics rap.
I don't know this Grandi.
Yeah? I got nothing to do with you, Vargas.
I'm an American citizen.
Listen. Vic was arrested in Mexico City, Captain.
