Welles-Day

Today is the actual anniversary of Welles's birth. He continues to talk about his adventures as a youngster, including a run-in with a young Adolph Hitler. Cavett also asks Welles about the most interesting person he ever met. He tells a story of Cornelia Lunt who knew everyone and knew lots of stories from the grand old days if Victorian England. I also like his story of what kind of a man George Marshall was. Welles was not only a great visual storyteller, but this story of Marshall shows how great a personal storyteller he was as well.
