9780002552400: This is Orson Welles

Orson Welles confounded his fans and his critics throughout his life. Arriving in Hollywood in 1939, he was proclaimed the "Wonder Boy" and by the age of 25 he had made arguably one of the greatest films of the century, "Citizen Kane". Flamboyant and visionary as a film and theatre director, radio producer and actor, writer, painter and magician, he spent his life working and yet he has been misunderstood as a "difficult, unorthodox" man who had achieved little from a promising start. Until he met Peter Bogdanovich - director of "The Last Picture Show", "Paper Moon" and "Mask", and himself a Hollywood maverick - Welles delighted in fuelling the myths that surrounded him and his work. In "This is Orson Welles", he comes clean, revealing in detail the intricacies of his work and, in his own words, "puts the record straight".
