TOTD 2020-2-16: Missing Orson

Orson Welles was such a good story teller. He had such a wonderful voice. He was so original and he makes the stars of today appear thin.

Tell me what you think of this interview. There are some gems in it.

  1. I now know how Citizen Kane was such a good picture. Orson Welles gave his camera man credit in placing his name on the same card in the final credits.

  2. I think the old radio performers were just a cut above the average actor because their voices alone could grip you. Who today has a voice like that?

  3. Great interview – Welles was such an engaging personality and Cavett was so good in bringing it out. He did indeed have a resonant, expressive voice & knew timing. I don’t think there’s anyone on tv like those two anymore.  Actors are prepped now by their agents on which stories to tell in their 5 minute spot on a talk show, and I can’t help but think that they are also prepped by their lawyers on what not to say so they don’t get sued.

    Lawsuits & pc culture have made the art of conversation a lot more vanilla.

  7. Just because Orson Welles learned the motion picture business in a day and a half, didn’t mean that 10 Cents could learn how to drive in a day and a half.

  8. I think  The Third Man was one of the best noir movies.

     

    Did something prompt you to post about Orson Welles?

    Perhaps it was the obituaries for Orson Bean?

    This clip was in my YouTube feed for some reason. I made the title what it is because of Orson Bean.
