Orson Welles
Penguin (Non-Classics) / 1997-2-1出版

In this first installment of his masterful biography, Simon Callow captures the chameleonic genius of Orson Welles as only an actor/director deeply rooted in the entertainment industry could. Here is Welles’s prodigious childhood; his youth in New York, with its fraught partnership with John Houseman and the groundbreaking triumph of his all-black Macbeth ; the pioneering radio work that culminated in the notorious 1938 broadcast of War of the Worlds ; and finally, his work in Hollywood, including an authoritative account of the making of Citizen Kane . Rich in detail and insight, this is far and away the definitive look at Orson Welles—a figure even more extraordinary than the myths that have surrounded him.
