At the outset of the decade that witnessed the production of his revolutionary documentaries Warrendale and A Married Couple, the brilliant Allan King tried something much more low-key but equally devastating by filming this interview with a candid, melancholic Orson Welles. Shot in a Parisian hotel room in 1960, and conducted by Bernard Braden, the conversation finds Welles expostulating at length on such subjects as Citizen Kane, screenwriting, directing, acting for stage and camera, his irritation in having to work as an actor in films about which he cared little; and his regrets over hiring certain friends to work in his movies. The program at hand originally aired on the CBC in the early 1960s.
