9780224079358: Orson Welles, Volume 3: One-Man Band

The conclusion to Simon Callow's masterful three-volume biography of Orson Welles.
     In One-Man Band, the third volume in his epic survey of Orson Welles' life and work, Simon Callow again probes in comprehensive and penetrating detail into one of the most complex artists of the twentieth century, looking closely at the triumphs and failures of an ambitious one-man assault on one medium after another -- theatre, radio, film, television -- even, at one point, ballet -- in each of which his radical and original approach opened up new directions and hitherto unglimpsed possibilities.
     The book begins with Welles' self-exile from America, and his realisation that he could only function happily as an independent film-maker, a one-man band; by 1964, he had filmed Othello, which took three years to complete, Mr Arkadin, the biggest conundrum in his output, and his masterpiece Chimes at Midnight, as well as Touch of Evil, his sole return to Hollywood, like all too many of his films wrested from his grasp and re-edited. Along the way he made inroads into the fledgling medium of television and a number of stage plays, including Moby-Dick, considered by theatre historians to be one of the seminal productions of the century. His private life was as dramatic as his professional life.
     The book shows what it was like to be around Welles, and, with a precision rarely attempted before, what it was like to be him, in which lies the answer to the old riddle: whatever happened to Orson Welles?

   · 2015 is the centenary of Welles's birth.

About the Author:

SIMON CALLOW is an actor, director and writer. He has appeared on the stage and in many films, including the hugely popular Four Weddings and a Funeral. His books include Being an Actor, Shooting the Actor, Love is Where it Falls, the first two volumes of his three-volume life of Orson Welles, his theatrical memoir My Life in Pieces, and, most recently, the highly acclaimed Charles Dickens and the Great Theatre of the World.

Review:

"One Man Band gathers strength page by page. This is by far the funniest volume of the three, and in some ways the most revelatory. The more vulnerable Welles becomes, the more vivid Callow's writing. The fear was always that a description of Welles' later years would be depressing. But this is that rare thing: a book about decline which is actually exhilarating" -- David Hare "One Man Band gathers strength page by page. This is by far the funniest volume of the three, and in some ways the most revelatory. The more vulnerable Welles becomes, the more vivid Callow's writing. The fear was always that a description of Welles' later years would be depressing. But this is that rare thing: a book about decline which is actually exhilarating" -- David Hare "A biography as huge as if it had been fed a Welles-style diet of roasted chicken and foie gras" -- Victoria Segal Sunday Times "Callow continuously strikes to the quick and the essential in Welles" -- Michael Coveney Independent "Impeccably detailed research peppered with anecdotes and [...] his witty conversational style" -- Kevin Maher The Times
