    This is a truly fascinating book. You don't need to be an Orson

    This is a truly fascinating book. You don't need to be an Orson Wells fan to be fascinated by this collection of conversations. Wells talks about his career, the people he has met, and even unrealized projects. It is well put together and a very interesting read.

    I found this to be a very interesting collection of stories about the life of Orson Wells, told from his own point of view. The collection covers his career as well as people he encountered over the course of his career.

    I love Orson Wells movies and so this was a natural book for me

    I love Orson Wells movies and so this was a natural book for me to pick up. I simply loved it. It provides great insight into one of America's greatest film directors of all time voiced in his own words.

    Such interesting insights, a very good read

    His stories of old hollywood are an absolute delight. The conversations they have regarding obtaining financing for projects can be a little dull. But it is interesting to see how he views himself and then contradicts those views almost immediately with his words.

    interesting for fans of Old Hollywood

    If you've ever wondered what having lunch with Orson Welles would've been like, here's your chance. He is an entertaining companion, though he does seem to be a crotchet-y old man at times. His stories and opinions are fascinating, though after awhile it gets tedious. Towards the end of the book I caught myself skimming pages instead of really reading them. People that are more knowledgeable about old Hollywood will probably enjoy this book a lot more than a regular person.
