Orson Welles on Dick Cavett

In honor of the 94th anniversary of Orson Welles's birth this week, I'm going to do a Week of Welles. One of my recent YouTube finds is this interview Welles did with Dick Cavett. I'm not sure what year this takes place, but I'm going to guess the early 1970's.

This first clip is some light banter between Welles and Cavett then Orson talks about how Harry Cohn "ruined" the shootout at the end of The Lady from Shanghai. More from Orson on Cohn in tomorrow's clip.

Indeed. The whole interview is great. It's broken up into six parts, so the series runs through Saturday.
