Personal Quote:

[on Orson Welles's radio work]: 'First Person Singular' was the singularly apt title of Orson Welles's first radio series. Although he signed off each of his programs with the words, "Obediently Yours", Welles was about as self-effacing as a drunken butler. See more »


He achieved his first renown as a film critic whilst living in Madison, Wisconsin, where he was also a film society organizer. He relocated to Los Angeles following the break-up of his first marriage and determined to get into films if possible, making a point of interviewing as many film directors as possible (many of these were published in film magazines).
