1. Thanks for this insightful review. This is one of the books on my reading list and I have been curious as to what I was in for. Sounds like it will be a fun read. This book would be really entertaining as an audio book! I would love to hear Welle’s in his own voice sharing these snarky stories!

    1. Robby, Harper’s released tapes of parts of Peter Bogdanovich’s interviews for This Is Orson Welles. They are probably available somewhere on line on MP3. It’s like having Orson sitting with you at your dinner table. Jaglom, being apparently a very negative and mean-spirited man, brought out the worst in Orson, while the more generous Bogdanovich brought out the best.

  2. Thanks for the comments! I’d love to hear the tapes too. It would make a hell of a podcast. Might put Marc Maron to shame…
