LGM Film Club, Part 74: Welles on Cavett


Last night, I watched this 1970 appearance by Orson Welles on the Dick Cavett Show, after Jack Lemmon had already been interviewed and was also on the stage. It’s quite fascinating. Welles oozes his charisma and charm, even if he also oozes some very bad hair die. Cavett moves between asking great questions and really dumb 70s questions (“What do you think about psychoanalysis?” Orson did not approve). Lemmon pitches in from time to time. It’s really a very interesting interview with lots of good film history talk, including about the making of Citizen Kane and Welles’ love of John Ford.
