Product Description

Product Description

Four films starring screen legend Orson Welles. Welles produced, directed, co-wrote and took the lead role in 'Citizen Kane' (1941), his first film, which is not-so-loosely based on the life of newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst. When newspaper tycoon Charles Foster Kane (Welles) dies after uttering the word 'Rosebud', an anonymous reporter (William Alland) is assigned the task of uncovering the meaning of Kane's dying word. In the course of his enquiries he receives varying accounts of his life from former colleagues Jedediah Leland (Joseph Cotten) and Bernstein (Everett Sloan), and ex-wife Susan Alexander (Dorothy Comingore). In 'Waterloo' (1970), Napoleon Bonaparte (Rod Steiger) is exiled to the island of Elba after his abdication. However, he escapes to be reunited with his generals and troops, and mounts a last desperate bid for power at the what is now known as the Battle of Waterloo. He has, however, reckoned without the British forces led by Arthur Welsley, the Duke of Wellington (Christopher Plummer), who has just returned from a successful campaign in Spain. Welles appears as Louis XVIII of France. Welles directs, produces, writes and stars in the maritime film noir 'The Lady from Shanghai' (1948). When unemployed Irishman Michael O'Hara (Welles) saves Elsa Bannister (Rita Hayworth) from a gang of thugs, she obtains him a position as a deckhand on the yacht belonging to her invalided lawyer husband, Arthur (Everett Sloane). It soon becomes clear that Elsa now has designs on O'Hara, and also wants her husband out of the way. O'Hara, although resisting Elsa's advances, finds himself becoming embroiled in a web of intrigue and murder. 'A Man for All Seasons' (1966) is an Oscar-winning adaptation of Robert Bolt's historical play. Sir Thomas More (Paul Scofield) has to wrestle with his conscience when he is appointed High Chancellor to King Henry VIII (Robert Shaw). The King wishes More's support in his decision to divorce his wife, Catherine of Aragon, in favour of Anne Boleyn. When More refuses and resigns from his office, he falls foul of a plot by Thomas Cromwell (Leo McKern) to remove him permanently. Orson Welles co-stars as Cardinal Wolsey.

This collection is a gem. I bought it specifically because I wanted a copy of A Man for all Seasons, having recently enjoyed Wolfe Hall, but at such a fantastic price for all four films how could I resist. To be honest The Lady from Shanghai is not a great film in the same league as the others but an interesting example of his work.

Go for it.
