Welles found national and international fame as the director and narrator in a 1938 radio adaptation of H. G. Wells' novel The War of the Worlds. It was reported to have caused widespread panic when listeners thought that an actual invasion by extraterrestrial beings was occurring. The publicity rocketed Welles to instant notoriety.

Rippy provides the first in-depth examination of early film and radio projects shelved by RKO or by Welles himself. While previous studies of Welles largely fall into the categories of biography or modernist film studies, this book extends the understanding of Welles via postmodern narrative theory and performance analysis, weaving his work into the cultural and commercial background of its production. By identifying the RKO years as a critical moment in performance history, Rippy synthesizes scholarship that until now has been scattered among film studies, narrative theory, feminist critique, American studies, and biography." "Orson Welles and the Unfinished RKO Projects traces the impact of legendary director Orson Welles on contemporary mass media entertainment and suggests that, Ironically, we can see Welles's performance genealogy most clearly in his unfinished RKO projects."--BOOK JACKET+-+876478453512626ocn012107435book19850.25Higham, CharlesOrson Welles, the rise and fall of an American geniusBiographyRecounts the life of the man responsible for the infamous "War of the Worlds" broadcast12244ocn003088661book19780.35Naremore, JamesThe magic world of Orson WellesCriticism, interpretation, etc+-+K447925235119813ocn025410550book19920.28Welles, OrsonThis is Orson WellesBiographyInterviewswork in radio, theatre, film, and television; his comments on Hollywood and Broadway producers, directors, and stars; and his wonderful views of life: the difference between feline and canine people; why men like magic shows and women don't; why actors are the third sex.

Four years later he wrote his first book with Welles as its subject; it would quickly achieve the status of a classic. Shortly before his death in 1958, Basin prepared this revised edition. Included are a brilliant introductory essay by François Traffaut and a profile by Jean Cocteau, along with 28 photos of Welles. In Orson Welles: A Critical View, Bazin traces Welles's career from the theatre and radio to Hollywood and Europe. He assesses Welles's works, his innovations--and in many ways takes the man's measure.

In this book, the most comprehensive and authoritative assessment of It's All True available, Catherine Benamou synthesizes a wealth of new and little-known source material gathered on two continents, including interviews with key participants, to present a compelling original view of the film and its historical significance. Breaking with the auteur-destroyed-by-Hollywood cliche, Benamou locates the premature termination of this cross-cultural project in the complex mix of American foreign policy, Brazilian and Mexican national interests, Welles' own desire for ethnographic authenticity, a Hollywood system looking for a conventional picture, and the political stakes of a host of players. Definitively debunking many of the myths surrounding It's All True, this groundbreaking book will challenge much received wisdom about Orson Welles, one of the most important figures in the history of cinema, and illuminate the unique place he occupies in American culture, broadly defined+-+99638457053249846ocn303099503book20090.19Feder, Chris WellesIn my father's shadow : a daughter remembers Orson WellesBiographyA moving and insightful look at life in the shadow of a legendary figure Orson Welles and an immensely entertaining story of growing up as his daughter in the unreal reality of Hollywood, enhanced by Welles Feder's collection of many never- before-seen family photographs+-+64407601069047ocn000575612book19720.47McBride, JosephOrson WellesCriticism, interpretation, etc+-+19215315858924ocn000091859book19700.39Higham, CharlesThe films of Orson Welles8722ocn044085450visu20000.24Robbins, TimCradle will rockHistoryDramaA kaleidoscopic look at the extraordinary events of 1930s America, from high society to life on the streets in Depression-era New York City.
