Orson Welles was so keen to make this film that he had to agree to shoot it in 23 days using only existing western movie sets. Macbeth ( Welles), Thane of Cawdor, is told by three witches that he will gain the kingdom. His wife, Lady Macbeth (Jeanette Nolan), urges him to hasten the prophecy with the aid of a knife. The original film was cut from over 110 minutes down to 89 but was restored for release onto video; it also had to be re-dubbed as Welles originally had the actors speaking with broad Scottish accents.

When his henchmen kill a young worker, Sheriff Ben Sadler (Jeff Chandler) investigates but meets resistance not only from those responsible but also from the local people who are afraid their town will suffer without Renchler's business. In 'Law and Order' (1953), after his attempts to bring peace to Tombstone prove futile due the townspeople's disregard for the justice system, Marshal Frame Johnson (Ronald Reagan) decides to move to Cottonwood along with his girlfriend Jeannie (Dorothy Malone) and his brothers Lute (Alex Nicol) and Jimmy (Russell Johnson).

In 'Ride Clear of Diablo' (1954) corrupted lawyer Tom (William Pullen) and sheriff Fred (Paul Birch) steal stock from the O'Mara ranch, killing the owner and his young son in the process. When railroad surveyor Clay O'Mara (Audie Murphy) hears about the murder of his father and brother he returns home to seek out those responsible. Encouraged by Tom, Fred makes Clay his deputy, and while he plans to use his new status for the benefit of his investigation, the killers instead send him after gunslinger Whitey Kinkaid (Dan Duryea), hoping he will take Clay down.

Classic late period film noir directed by virtuoso Orson Welles. A sweaty thriller set in a hellish border town, it stars Charlton Heston as Mike Vargas, the self-righteous Mexican cop who goes up against Welles' monumental Hank Quinlan, an old-time detective who fabricates evidence in order to mount a case based on gut-instinct. Famous for its incredibly choreographed seven-minute opening shot, Henry Mancini's powerful score, and the faded magnificence of the Quinlan character, it is often considered to be Welles' second masterpiece.

Orson Welles stars in this 1950s crime drama based on the novel by Meyer Levin, which in turn is based on a real legal case that took place in 1920s Chicago. Two wealthy law students, Judd Steiner (Dean Stockwell) and Arthur Strauss (Bradford Dillman), decide that they can get away with committing the perfect murder. They kidnap and kill the teenage son of a millionaire, but a pair of spectacles left at the crime scene leads to them being identified as the murderers. Their families hire America's top lawyer Jonathan Wilk (Welles) - a known opponent of the death penalty - to defend them in their trial, and Wilk goes on to make American legal history by successfully arguing in favour of a life sentence rather than the pair's execution.

R651 Discovery Miles 6 510 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Before The Cradle Will Rock, before War of the Worlds, before Citizen Kane-there was Marching Song. At the age of 25 Orson Welles co-wrote, directed, and starred in Citizen Kane, widely regarded as one of the greatest films of all time. But this was not the first achievement in the young artist's career. A few years earlier he terrorized America with his radio broadcast of War of the Worlds. And even before he conquered the airwaves, Welles had made a name for himself in New York theatre, with his dynamic stagings of Shakespeare classics and the politically charged musical The Cradle Will Rock. But before all of these there was Marching Song-a play about abolitionist John Brown-that Welles had co-written at the age of 17. While attending the Todd School for Boys, Welles collaborated with Roger Hill, the schoolmaster at Todd, to produce this full-length drama. Marching Song: A Play is a work by one of America's true geniuses at an early stage of his creative growth. Steeped in historical detail, the play chronicles Brown's fight against slavery, his raid on Harper's Ferry, his capture, his conviction for treason, and his execution. In addition to the entire text of the play, this volume features a biographical sketch of Welles and Hill-written by Hill's grandson-during their days together at Todd. A fascinating dramatization of a pivotal event in American history, this play also demonstrates Welles' burgeoning development as social commentator and an advocate for human rights, particularly on behalf of African Americans. Featuring a foreword by noted Welles biographer, Simon Callow, Marching Song: A Play is an important work by an American icon.

Four films based on the literary works of Graham Greene. In 'The Third Man' (1949), writer Holly Martins (Joseph Cotten) arrives in war-torn Vienna to take up a job with his friend Harry Lime (Orson Welles). He is informed that Lime died a week previously in a car accident, but upon investigating further discovers that the circumstances of Lime's death are shrouded in confusion. Martins begins to wonder just how well he knew his old friend after the head of local military police, Major Calloway (Trevor Howard), convinces him that Lime was in fact a black market drug racketeer responsible for many deaths. In 'Brighton Rock' (1947), 16-year-old gangster Pinkie Brown (Richard Attenborough) uses young waitress Rose Brown (Carol Marsh) as an alibi after commiting a murder at the race track. Worried that she will give him away, Pinkie marries Rose. However, his subsequent attempts to drive her to the point of suicide do not go according to plan. 'The Heart of the Matter' (1953) stars Trevor Howard as Scobie, an assistant police commissioner posted in Sierra Leone in World War 2. Exploring familiar Greene themes such as religion and work politics, the film co-stars Elizabeth Allan and Maria Schell as the wronged wife and the hard-done-by mistress. 'The Fallen Idol' (1948) is an award-winning adaptation of Greene's short story 'The Basement Room', and is told primarily from a child's perspective. Philippe (Bobby Henrey) is the young son of a diplomat who idolises Baines (Ralph Richardson), his father's butler. When Baines' wife is found murdered and Baines is implicated, Philippe does everything he can to point the investigation away from the butler. In doing so he makes matters worse - and also discovers that his hero is not the man he thought he was.

Orson Welles
R271 Discovery Miles 2 710 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

The only novel by Orson Welles, a witty, madcap, pulp-noir adventure of international intrigue, blackmail, and murder

The mysterious Mr. Arkadin claims he cannot remember anything of his life prior to the moment in 1927 when he found himself alone in Zurich with two hundred thousand Swiss francs in his pocket, a sum with which he subsequently built a vast fortune. Now a fabulously wealthy and influential financier, he enlists the services of one Van Stratten, a small-time smuggler and racketeer, charging him with the task of investigating Arkadin's forgotten past. Traveling across the world--and through the seedy underworld of postwar Europe--Van Stratten begins piecing together information for his confidential report. But for some unknown and sinisterly suspicious reason, everyone he speaks to soon turns up dead.

The work of an acknowledged genius of the stage and cinema, Mr. Arkadin: Aka Confidential Report is the basis for the controversial motion picture written, directed by, and starring Welles himself--the movie the great auteur bemoaned as "the most butchered film of my career." Welles's hauntingly strange and exhilarating novel remains an enigmatic expression of his intentions and an enduring example of his storytelling brilliance.
