Walter Murch the sound film man (1868 words)
In restoring Touch of Evil (1958), one of the greatest film noir thrillers and yet another Welles film that suffered from studio interference (to the point where Welles was barred from the lot and the movie was finished by another hand), Murch again combined sound and vision.
It is generally held that film making has moved away from the old mag recorder methods but Murch says that it is still relatively new for him.
The main surprise in meeting him is discovering that a man so associated with The Doors song 'The End' was not a fan of Jim Morrison and his chums.
