Very short and very moving
16 November 2003 | by (Erlangen, Germany) – See all my reviews

This short bit is the last footage of Welles before he died. He already looks rather ill, but his reading of a passage from Charles Lindbergh's diary, dedicated to a friend of his, is really moving. A last great look at one of the greatest!
