Incidentally, on matters cinematic, it seems that  interest in the work of Orson Welles is undergoing something of a revival.

There's the new film:-

'Me and Orson Welles'

(-filmed largely in the Isle of Man, both for the appropriateness of the specific theatre used there, and for cost reasons.)

 And  in Britain, the BBC happens to be running an Orson Welles season (on BBC 4 TV), with this evening:

'Citizen Kane' (1941)

 Plus:

'Journey into Fear' (1942)*
