That also sounds like Orson Welles's movie "Touch of Evil", which is based
on the book "Badge of Evil" by Whit Masterson (pen name of Bob Wade and H.
Bill Miller (thank you, IMDb and Wikipedia)), published in 1956. As far as I
remember, though, there is no stolen ring in the movie.

It almost sounds like a movie Brad Pitt was in.  A gun was thought to be
cursed... come to find out there was a ring inside.

This thriller, read by a library patron in the late 50s or early 60s, begins
with the murder of an American couple who are driving through Mexico, and
the theft of a ring with a blue stone.  No other information available!
Does this ring a bell with anyone?

Many thanks--
Joan B., librarian
