Biography

Orson Welles (born as George Orson Welles in Kenosha, Wisconsin, U.S.) was an American film director, actor and screenwriter. He is known as one of Hollywood's best directors.

Welles was born in Kenosha, Wisconsin and had an unusual childhood. His parents pushed for his older brother Dickie was to become a famous person. Dickie Welles did not fit the intended parents' role and ended up homeless. Orson became the parents of new prodigy, and it suited him well, although his relationship with other people took unilateral damage of the parents focus on making him a prodigy.

Orson made his stage debut in Dublin in Ireland in 1931, and in the course of 1934, he was an established radio manufacturer in the United States. Welles received some attention in 1937 with a radio drama version of Shakespeare's Julius Caesar, where the action was added to the fascist Italy. Shortly after he formed and John Houseman Mercury Theatre.

In the summer of 1938 began Welles and Mercury Theatre weekly broadcasts of short plays based on classical or popular literary works. The broadcast 30 October was a variant of Herbert George Wells War of the Worlds, created so that it looked like the most of a news broadcast that broke into a regular music program and described the Martians landing in Grove Mill, New Jersey. This broadcast made Welles famous in the United States, the broadcast caused panic among some of the listeners who did not understand that it was not a real news show. Welles enjoyed the publicity the broadcast had created and secured a contract for three film productions from Hollywood Company RKO.
Welles was again the center of attention when he published his first film Citizen Kane in 1941. A gossip columnist convinced avismagnaten William Randolph Hearst that it was he who was the basis for the main character in the film. The result was that the Hearst media empire boycotted the film completely. When the film was released, it was completely overshadowed by the new cinematic ideas Welles had given their full expiry of the movie.

Welles' second film was the more traditional The Magnificent Ambersons, based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning book by Booth Tarkington, who lead in RKO hoped would make up for the relative commercial blunder Citizen Kane had been. During the production of the film was Welles asked by U.S. authorities to make a documentary about South America. Welles left the set after just having gone through the first rough cut, because he believed that the early editing decisions may be given by telegram. At this time, RKO struggled with poor finances. Since they feared even a commercial blunder they took over control of the film. Among other things, allow them to new ends, while the original Welles was eventually deleted permanently.

After three more attempts to work within the Hollywood system Welles left Hollywood in 1948.

The rest of the direction his career Welles films produced in Europe. His films were self-financed or produced by sympathetic producers. In almost all these projects, it was Welles who had the last word, and this independence also resulted in small budgets and technical facilities. Despite these setbacks were part of Welles works of some of the best from this period.
