The magnificent Welles[Videorecording]
Citizen Kane rocketed Orson Welles into Hollywood stardom and only in his mid-20s, he was given complete artistic control over his next film, The Magnificent Ambersons, but the film ruined Welles, who waged and lost a power struggle with the studio. This presentation, shot before a live audience, features an impersonation of Welles that investigates the making of The Magnificent Ambersons, as alone in a hotel room Welles gradually realizes his masterpiece is slipping away. 2002. 93 min.

"Several of Orson Welles's films show his usage of female characters to demonstrate his attitudes about Europe and the US, often interchangeable with Hollywood. Female characters in Welles's 'Macbeth,' 'Citizen Kane,' and the 'Chimes at Midnight' portray women as both repellant and attractive. Old, romanticized landscapes of England are frequently confronted by harsh, threatening images embodied in Welles's cinematic women." [Expanded Academic Index]

"Burning masterworks: from Kane to F for fake." Film Comment v. 30 (January/February 1994) p. 50-9
"In the films that followed his masterpiece, Citizen Kane, Orson Welles seemed to make the RKO slogan "showmanship in place of genius" his own. With such films as F for Fake, Welles adopted the mantle of the charlatan in order to meet and neutralize the charge that he was a huckster who pulled off one flashy piece of sleight-of-hand but could never quite make the magic work again. Welles's champions have argued that if everything he ever made, worked on, partly finished, scripted, or planned were incorporated in the record, people would accept him as a substantial creator and acknowledge that there was more to him than has met the eye. The tendency of everything Welles made was in the opposite direction, however: to prove that creation is less than meets the eye." [Art Index]

"The unproduced adaptation of Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness by filmmaker Orson Welles is discussed. The writer argues that this film, which was Welles's first film project, provides a fascinating case for both the study of literary modernism and film history, because it brings a founding moment in modernist literature into a new context. Examining the production and direction of the film, the writer considers how the film deals with Conrad's theme of primitivism in a self-conscious manner, exposing its underlying racism and miscegenation; the film's inventive deployment of interracial sexuality and black and white tensions that devolve into chaos foregrounds racial issues in America prior to World War II. The writer concludes that Welles's first work in Hollywood anticipated an auteur's alternative to the classical Hollywood narrative and its mythology of race and politics." [Art Index]

"Orson Welles was the subject of close scrutiny by the FBI throughout the 1940s. Despite his involvement in Left and Popular Front activities during the late 1930s, Welles didn't come to the FBI's notice until April 1941, when bureau chief J. Edgar Hoover sent a memo to Assistant Attorney General Matthew McGuire listing Welles's membership in over 12 allegedly communistic organizations. The FBI augmented its Welles file during the ensuing years with biographical sketches, newspaper clippings, and reports on his political and sexual activities. In 1945, with Welles's political visibility at a peak and the United States gearing up for a purge of the Left, Hoover had a "security index card" prepared on Welles that listed him as a Communist and a potential threat to national security. After a 1949 tip about Welles's involvement with Italian Communists failed to yield any significant disclosures, however, Hoover canceled his security index card." [Art Index]

While not noted as an auteur of the thriller, Orson Welles actually directed more of these genre pictures than any other in his Hollywood career. Scholars have portrayed Welles's thriller films either as works imposed on him and then ruined by the studios, or as proof of his failure as a popular filmmaker. But this paper illuminates why Welles sought to make thrillers. The director drew out the potential of the genre, in order to remain the critical and mass artist that he had been in his youth.

"Part of a special section on film adaptations of plays by William Shakespeare. Orson Welles's film adaptations of Shakespeare's plays are discussed. Welles made and starred in three such films: Macbeth (1948), Othello (1952), and Chimes at Midnight (1966). He also undertook ambitious plans for films based on Shylock and King Lear, but neither project was realized. His Macbeth explores the tortured soul of Macbeth through the Wellesian world of skewed camera angles and brilliant decoupage, and the film's sheer nerve and energy make it impossible to ignore. In Chimes at Midnight, Welles gave his best performance as the larger-than-life yet vulnerable antihero Sir John Falstaff, and his Othello, which took three years to make because of repeated financial crises, is a work of art. In his struggle to find the best way to put Shakespeare on screen, however, Welles never quite made the transition from bohemian art house to suburban mall house." [Art Index]
Actor Orson Welles had a passion for Shakespeare. Although many predicted that he would soon degenerate into a 'self-destroyed artist' after starring in 'Citizen Kane' in 1941, Welles resurfaced to build an impressive Shakesperean body of work. He made 'Macbeth' in 1948, 'Othello' in 1952 and 'Chimes at Midnight' in 1966. In later life, he continued to work on projects to bring more Shakespeare to the cinema but was largely unsuccessful.

"A discussion of sound in Orson Welles's Citizen Kane, particularly sound used to accompany deep-focus images. The writer investigates the three main reasons for the common misconstrual of sound in this film: insufficient attention to the film's actual sound; misunderstanding of the nature of radio sound; and ignorance of the history of Hollywood sound conventions, particularly in relation to images composed in depth. He argues that careful attention to these three areas suggests new conclusions about the role of sound in the history of deep-focus photography, about the contribution of radio to Citizen Kane, and about the film's place in the history of American cinema. He concludes that the progeny of the film's radio sound is in television." [Art Index]

"A recent revival of interest in director/actor Orson Welles is discussed. Citizen Kane and Welles, its director, are identified not as distant patriarchal icons of a vanished system but as representative of vibrant artistic struggles against crusty conventions of style and narration to which younger filmmakers immediately relate and from which they draw creative empowerment. As well as a barrage of recent biographies, critical monographs, and journal articles, a surprising quantity of Internet sites, documentaries, made-for-cable productions, and one full-scale spectacle have busily rehashed, revived, reinterpreted, or simply exploited Welles's legacy."

"Part of a special section on the recently rediscovered Orson Welles film It's All True. An examination of the life and work of the Brazilian actor Sebastiao Bernardes de Souza Prata, stage name "Grande Otelo," who featured in the film. Grande Otelo was born in 1915, the same year as Welles, and started acting in circuses and music-halls, before becoming one of the great stars of Brazilian radio during the thirties and forties. Working on It's All True in Brazil, Welles soon discovered Otelo's talents. He considered Otelo to be nothing less than the finest actor in South America. It will never be known if Otelo could have pursued a successful Hollywood career: In losing his battle to complete It's All True, Welles also lost Hollywood's chance to experience the work of this extraordinary acting talent."

"The writer discusses the 1993 documentary on Orson Welles, It's All True, made by Dick Wilson, Bill Krohn, and Myron Meisel. The film starts with the discovery of new evidence--the lost footage of Welles's three-part film It's All True, shot in 1942. The documentary focuses on the seven months between Welles's departure for Latin America in February of 1942 and his return in August of 1942, during which he shot footage that reenacted a 61-day voyage to Rio de Janeiro undertaken by four Brazilian fishermen seeking social reforms from their government. It shows how wartime politics; corporate power plays at the studio, RKO; and racism converged to undermine Welles and give him a reputation as an unreliable director." [Art Index]

"Part of a special section on the recently rediscovered Orson Welles film It's All True. After Welles died in October 1985, 309 boxes of negatives labeled "IT'S ALL TRUE" were discovered in a strongroom at Paramount Pictures. At the beginning of 1942, the U.S. State Department sent Welles to Rio de Janeiro as a cultural ambassador. His mission was to reinforce the southern front against the Axis powers by making a film that would strengthen the links between the United States and its South American neighbors. While Welles was in Brazil, he filmed the political struggle of the jangadeiros, poor native fishermen from the northeast. New executives at RKO studios, influenced by a campaign by RKO publicists to destroy Welles's reputation, refused to finance the end of the film. A restored version of the film was shown in December 1993 at the New York Film Festival." [Art Index]

"A review of the documentary It's All True: Based On An Unfinished Film by Orson Welles, which contains the original footage of a film that Orson Welles started in Latin America in 1941. The film was intended to have three parts: a Mexican sequence and two Brazilian sequences, one about carnival and the other about four fishermen's real life epic sea journey to Rio on a primitive raft. The heart of the movie is the 22 minute reconstruction of the latter sequence, a truly Homeric journey whose mythic size is captured by Welles in both his pacing and compositions." [Art Index]

"Part of a special section on the recently rediscovered Orson Welles film It's All True. A review of the film. The guiding forces behind the film's restoration--Bill Krohn, Richard Wilson, and Myron Meisel--have given the film life by giving coherence to its fragmented parts. The beauty of this film does not just derive from seeing justice finally done to a film that has been out of sight for far too long; the film is also remarkable for the number of stylistic motifs it has in common with both previous and later films by Welles. It is in this film that Welles discovered outdoor filming and abandoned the studio for the open air and landscapes. This film was also the basis of the rapport that Welles subsequently developed between the image and music in films such as Lady from Shanghai and Touch of Evil." [Art Index]

UC users only
The article discusses the controversial issues of the film "Mr. Arkadin," written and directed by Orson Welles. According to the author, the film is a fake documentary on the communism paranoia in the U.S. in 1950s during the Cold War. Upon its release, "Mr. Arkadin" was questioned and arrogated by the U.S. government. During that time, Welles was also an exile living in Europe and was under the surveillance of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Rosenbaum, Jonathan.
"The Seven Arkadins." (Orson Welles film 'Mr. Arkadin')Film Comment v28, n1 (Jan-Feb, 1992):50 (7 pages).
"Orson Welles's Mr. Arkadin (1955), which Welles claimed was taken from him and cut contrary to his intentions, exists in several different versions. The film's plot and key themes are set out in an episode of the radio series The Adventures of Harry Lime, written by and starring Welles and probably recorded in 1951, and in Masquerade, a 1953 draft of Welles's script for the film. The print of Mr. Arkadin closest to Welles's conception is the one distributed by Corinth Films. Confidential Report, apparently the main version shown in Europe, is substantially different from the American version. The public domain version of Mr. Arkadin currently circulating on video and shown on television in the United States is largely a clumsy truncation of Confidential Report. There is also a Spanish version with alternate casting and a novel called Mr. Arkadin, signed but not written by Welles and based on his script." [Art Index]

"Carol Reed's The Third Man and Orson Welles's Touch of Evil are the same film ten years apart. The latter is a murky-majestical version of the former that tackles the same issues of illusion, foolishness, friendship, hope, and treachery. A pianola is a zither by another name; Vienna, Austria, is twin town with Venice, California; and the stories of both films begin with a death by motor vehicle and end with a murder by betrayal. Above all, Hank is Harry, the antihero living on into a sourer nihilism. Other similarities between the films are examined." [Art Index]

"Touch of evil, epitaphe du film noir." Cahiers du Cinemano531 Jan 1999. p. 5
"The writer discusses the new version of Orson Welles's film Touch of Evil. The new version is the result of the meticulous work of an editor of genius, following suggestions left by Welles to the technicians at Universal Studios after he had seen the studios' version of his film. Most of the changes are often invisible; the only big shock for those who know the 1957 and 1975 versions is the opening sequence, which has at last been freed of the credits and of Henri Mancini's score. This sequence now plunges the audience into a cacophony of sounds and atmospheric music that develops unceasingly until the climax, putting the emphasis from the start on the film's carnavalesque dimension."

"The production of Orson Welles's moody and evocative 1958 noir thriller Touch of Evil is discussed. Scripted by Welles on the basis of Whit Masterson's pulp novel Badge of Evil, the movie depicts a shadowy maze of strange people, crime, squalor, and moral decay. Its prestigious cast includes Welles himself, Charlton Heston, Janet Leigh, Marlene Dietrich, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Akim Tamiroff, Dennis Weaver, and Joseph Calleia. Filmed by cinematographer Russell Metty with a striking musical score by Henry Mancini, the film was cut and recut by Welles and then cut and shortened in studio, which led Welles to write a 58-page memo detailing some 50 changes that he felt would improve it. Following Welles's instructions to the letter, the film has now been restored and recut, and it was screened at the Cannes Film Festival in the summer of 1998." [Art Index]

"A discussion of Touch of Evil, directed by and costarring Orson Welles, which was released in February 1958. The most crucial change made by Welles to the script was moving its setting from southern California to the Mexican-American border. This and other changes made the film more directly a disquisition on the theme of "crossing the border." With its emphasis on Mexico and race hatred, the film was no stray occurrence in Welles's career: his political commitment can be seen as the red thread running right through his work. He clearly wanted to make the film a political and moral fable, with its centerpiece being the denunciation of the "lousy cop" Quinlan for racism and for framing suspects." [Art Index]
