I’m new here and so glad I’ve found this community. I think Orson Welles was genius, I admire nearly all of his work – as a director, actor or writer. The first movie I saw with him was Carol Reed’s Third Man and it was in the cinema on a big screen. Gosh, he was so impressive as Harry Lime. Especially the first scene in which Harry appears was essential for me, and I thought ‘So this is Orson Welles!’But also I’m kind of in love with him. I don’t even care he is dead or that he was obese since 1950s. It is because of Citizen Kane scene where Kane kisses a dancer. Another essential moment for me.Recently I’ve started listening to Mercury Theatre On The Air and I really like it. It makes me feel vintage what I like too, because I have a strong feeling that I live in a wrong era. The first half of the 20th century would be better for me.I’ve written a short story about an Orson’s fan who loves him so much that she can’t live her real life. Unfortunately it’s not in English.So I’m looking forward to reading your posts and browsing on photos.
I had to laugh at the thing about him being obese. he Really did let himself go, right? those videos of him at those dean martin roasts are astonishing. and that beard!but at the same time he was a genius and an artist and i'm glad to hear he's inspired you! I'm making a short film with friends and one of the characters is very much influenced by Early orson welles and his radio persona.i hope the community gets resurrected!
He inspires me a lot but I'm only good in writing. I would like to do some visual art if I could.Hope you'll share your film.
I've very in love with him. No shame in that, he was beautiful and electric. Even when he let himself go, he still had his voice and his presence, and he always had beautiful hands (seriously, check them out *lesigh*).Anyway. Welcome to the community. :)
The hands of a true artist... (I wish he could touch me. :))Thank you.
Hi! Welcome to the community...I am madly in love with Orson, too...he was unbelievably gorgeous IMHO and had the sexiest voice on Earth :)!
Thanks! Yes, his voice... very sexy, very hypnotic for me. Sometimes I can't stop listenig to Dark Avenger by Manovar because of Orson's part in it... 'did clap like thunder'. :)
You have a Marc Bolan icon and are also an Orson fan. That is so awesome.
Yeah, I'm a big glam rock and Bowie fan too. I was lazy to upload some Orson icon but I have one or two now. :)
