Back to all the Orson Welles movies I saw between 1952 and 1970, and the comments on them which I kept in my movie card-file. Unfortunately, very few of the pictures left were directed by Welles. Mostly acting or narration credits.

Onward through all the Orson Welles pictures I saw and kept cards on for my 1952-1970 movie file, films OW either directed, produced, wrote, or acted in; the latter category, unfortunately, dominates, since he directed so few movies of his own. Though here we have The Trial, my least favorite of Welles’ major works.

My Dear Blogdanovich Readers, I'm really sorry to have disappeared the last few months but I've been making a new picture. It's called Squirrels to the Nuts. Between shots, so to speak, I did a piece about an enthralling new biography of John Wayne by Scott Eyman titled John Wayne: The Life and Legend. It appeared in the New York Times last Sunday.
