Summary
Revealing the facts rather than the myths behind Orson Welles's Hollywood career, this history fills in the gaps behind the drama of one of the most well-known American filmmakers. Exploring why Welles's films, as released, never matched his youthful masterpiece Citizen Kane, this historical investigation delves into the enemies that hounded him, his unwaning faith in his audience, and the brilliance of his films--before they were butchered by the studios. Based on shooting scripts, schedules, internal memos, interviews, articles, lectures, and personal correspondence, this work creates a concrete picture of his struggles and successes, bringing to life the intelligent, perceptive, and passionate man who, for all his failings as a person, was utterly uncompromising in his art.--From publisher description
