Orson Welles and the unfinished RKO projects : a postmodern perspective

Traces the impact of legendary director Orson Welles on contemporary mass media entertainment and suggests that we can see Welles's performance genealogy most clearly in his unfinished RKO projects. Marguerite H. Rippy extends the understanding of Welles via postmodern narrative theory and performance analysis, weaving his work into the cultural and commercial background of its production.
