David Bromwich reviews Orson Welles: The Stories of his Life, by Peter
Conrad (Faber 2003. ISBN 0571209785) in London Review of Books, Vol.26,
No.11, 3 June 2004 and has much to say about the fat port salesman's
productions of Shakespeare films and plays.
For a full reading it will be necessary to obtain the book and a copy of
LRB (access to the archives is for subscribers only).
There is a great deal of fascinating material. At about 4000 words the
review is too lengthy to provide a synopsis - Sorry! But definitely
worth obtaining if only for the opinions and insights on the films.
