Orson Welles shocked Broadway with his all-black voodoo version of Macbeth, challenged the US government with his production of The Cradle Will Rock, terrified America with his spoof radio broadcast of The War Of The Worlds, and then at the tender age of 26, directed what many consider the greatest American film ever made: Citizen Kane. The popular myth is that it was all downhill from there, that Welles became a fallen genius yet, despite overwhelming odds, he went on to make great film noirs like The Lady From Shanghai and Touch Of Evil. Far from being down and out, Welles became one of the first cutting-edge independent film-makers. As well as having an introductory essay, in this book each of Welles' films is analyzed, and there is a handy multimedia reference guide for further study.
