Orson Welles Volume 2 from the Author: Simon Callow. The reason for the decline of Orson Welles's career is a hotly debated issue, but decline it certainly did. When Citizen Kane, his first film, opened in 1941, Welles was universally acclaimed as the most audacious filmmaker alive. But instead of marking the beginning of a triumphant career in Hollywood, the film still regularly voted the greatest ever made proved to be an exception in Welles's life and work. In 1947 Welles left America for Europe and lived for the best part of twenty years in self-imposed exile. Welles himself famously quipped 'I started at the top and worked my way down' - the second volume of Simon Callow's compelling biography tells the story of that complex and protracted descent from grace.

Orson Welles At Work from the Author: Jean-Pierre Berthomé. Orson Welles at Work is an in-depth, behind-the-camera survey of the work of one of the world's most acclaimed cinematic visionaries. Under-appreciated in his lifetime, Orson Welles (1915-1985) was an exceptional filmmaker whose legend has been fuelled by myriad myths and stories. Having gained unrivalled access to European and American archives in order to provide an uncommonly detailed account of the man and his diverse projects, authors Jean-Pierre Berthome and Francois Thomas sort the facts from the fiction in this new study. Providing a fresh and insightful view of the director and his work, this book examines the entirety of Welles's career, from his theatrical beginnings to his very last years, and offers analyses of all his creative works, including the feature films, short films, unfinished works and his programmes for television. In addition the book recounts the various stages of each of the twelve completed feature films (from conception and pre-production, through filming and editing, to critical reception and beyond), including the celebrated Citizen Kane (1941), The Magnificent Ambersons (1942) and Touch of Evil (1957-8). Discussion of all the works is supported by over 400 illustrations of on-set photographs, screenplays and scripts, contracts, sketches, storyboards, models, production reports, memos and correspondence, some of which has been uncovered by the authors' latest research.
