360° Panorama of "Touch of Venice" Mural in Venice Beach



Jonas Never's "Touch of Venice" mural on Windward Avenue pays homage to the opening sequence of the 1958 film noir classic "Touch of Evil" directed by Orson Wells.

The famous scene was actually shot on location along Windward and Pacific avenues although the scene as it was written is supposed to be a Mexican border town instead of a sunny SoCal beach one.

The mural features Charlton Heston and Janet Leigh, shown in the mural's foreground with Welles visible in the lower right side and a self-portrait of Never himself on the right side as well.

It measures 150' x 50' and is located on the east side of the Venice Beach Hotel, 21 Windward Avenue, Los Angeles, CA.
