Orson Welles

Orson Welles Orson George Welles (1915-1985) produced a radio version of H. G. Wells's novel The War of the Worlds in 1938, and then produced, directed, and starred in Citizen Kane in 1941, a landmark in the history of cinema, yet he directed very few films subsequently in Hollywood.

Short Biography:

Later films as an actor include The Lady from Shanghai in 1948 and The Third Man in 1949.

In 1937 he founded the Mercury Theater, New York, with John Houseman, where their repertory productions included a modern-dress version of Julius Caesar. The realistic radio broadcast of H. G. Wells's The War of the Worlds in 1938 caused panic and fear of Martian invasion in the USA. He directed the films Touch of Evil in 1958 and Chimes at Midnight in 1967, a Shakespeare adaptation.
