Orson Welles is perhaps most famous for his panic-inducing radio adaptation of The War of the Worlds and the award-winning film Citizen Kane. For his entire life though, Welles's obsession was Shakespeare. He produced and starred in Shakespeare plays on Broadway and directed and starred in multiple versions of Shakespeare's work on film, including Chimes at Midnight. Our guest is Michael Anderegg, the author of Orson Welles, Shakespeare, and Popular Culture. From the Shakespeare Unlimited podcast series. Published January 23, 2018. © Folger Shakespeare Library.
