Did You Know?
[on making Citizen Kane
(1941) with Orson Welles
] Orson must have been about 22 then and I still think he's one of the greatest directors in the world. I don't know why people regard him as a difficult man. He was the easiest, most inspiring man I've ever worked with. He was the only one who seemed to know what he was doing because we were all virgins on that picture.
Like Orson Welles
, he has appeared in the top films of both the American Film Institute and the British Film Institute; for AFI it was Citizen Kane
(1941) as Jedediah Leland and for BFI, its The Third Man
(1949) as Holly Martins.
