"The word genius was whispered into my ear while I was still mewling in
my crib." – Orson Welles, actor, theater producer, voice on the radio, filmmaker. Bert Rebhandl's critical
biography of one of the few universal artists of the 20th century narrates the life of Welles in close conjunction with his
major creations. The author's reading illuminates a territory named "Orson Welles", a place where Shakespearean characters
and modern media technologies meet in a unique fashion.
