Orson Welles's remarkable career as director, producer, screenwriter, author, and actor may have caused some to forget his days in radio theater. This set is a wonderful reminder. Welles's marvelous voice, moving in pitch and tone, is closer to music than speech. Best of all are Welles's introductions to the stories, in particular that of H. G. Wells, as Orson recalls his historic radio reading of The War of the Worlds. A delightful collection and a tribute to Welles's talent.

About the Author:

Orson Welles (1915-1985) was an iconic Academy Award-winning director, writer, actor, and producer for film, stage, radio, and television. He won the 1941 Academy Award for best original screenplay for Citizen Kane and in 1970 received the Academy Honorary Award. Known for his baritone voice, he was well regarded as a radio and film actor, a celebrated Shakespearean stage actor, and an accomplished magician. He first gained notoriety for his October 30, 1938, radio broadcast of H. G. Wells' The War of the Worlds. Winner of multiple awards, he is now widely acknowledged as one of the most important dramatic artists of the twentieth century. In 2002, two British Film Institute polls of directors and critics voted Orson Welles the greatest film director of all time.
