Cat. #00575312: ORSON WELLES

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Scarce vintage thick black pencil signature on a 3x5-inch card, acquired in-person in the early 1940s, not long after his infamous "War of the Worlds" radio broadcast, which so thrilled and terrified the unsuspecting Halloween audience in 1938. In good condition and nice for matting with a favorite photograph. Brilliant Orson Welles was Oscar nominated for directing and starring in Citizen Kane (1941), and shared a trophy with Herman J. Mankiewicz for the screenplay. Other highlights of his extraordinary career include The Magnificent Ambersons (1942); Journey Into Fear (1943); The Stranger (1946); Lady of Shanghai (1947); Confidential Report (1955); and Touch of Evil (1958).
