Providing a fresh and insightful view of the director and his work, this book examines the entirety of Welles's career, from his theatrical beginnings to his very last years, and offers analyses of all his creative works, including the feature films, short films, unfinished works and his programmes for television.
Discussion of each film, including the celebrated Citizen Kane (1941), The Magnificent Ambersons (1942) and Touch of Evil (1957–8), is supported by over 400 illustrations of screenplays and scripts, contracts, sketches, storyboards, models, production reports, memos, letters and correspondence uncovered by new research in European and American archives.
