Richard France is eager to present his lecture-screening Early Orson: the years
Before Citizen Kane, which focuses on those few remarkable years (1934-1949)
that Welles worked in NYC. Among other Welles productions, France focuses on
the Mercury Shakespeare work.

Orson Welles,* a Choice selection for Most Outstanding Academic Books of 1978,
its 1990 companion volume, *Orson Welles on Shakespeare,* and *Obediently
Yours, Orson Welles,* a one-man play.
France did graduate work in playwriting at the Yale School of Drama and earned
