Episode 60 – Discussing The Orson Welles Series With Professor James Naremore

On this week’s episode, we’re talking to Professor James Naremore about the Orson Welles series coming to the Cinema in December. Professor Naremore has written a book about Welles and appeared on DVD commentary tracks for both Touch of Evil and Mr. Arkadin. We’re thrilled to have him back on the podcast.

We start out with What Have You Seen Lately, and Jason is talking about a Nicholas Winding-Refn film, Valhalla Rising, and Andy is discussing some things at the Cinema.

We then launch into a long discussion of Orson Welles and his films, specifically Magnificent Ambersons, Citizen Kane, and Touch of Evil. Professor Naremore also discusses why Welles had such a hard time making the movies he wanted to make, and how some of the cuts affected Magnificent Ambersons and Touch of Evil.

It’s always a great time when Jim Naremore stops by, so listen in!
