Strangely enough there doesn't seem to have been a thread about the man so far. Maybe David Thomson said all that needed to be said about him in his biog/puzzle. But what does anyone think about the man and his work? Is Kane still watchable? Does Touch of Evil touch? Has anyone done a worse Irish accent in cinematic history than OW in Lady from Shanghai?

Answers on a sled, please.

Terry Shannon, Friday, 8 February 2002 01:00 (eighteen years ago) link

Worse oh far worse = Tommy Lee Jones in that film abt the IRA! Lady from Shanghai = one of my all times faves partly because that accent is a shockah!! "Poison pills poison pills!"

mark s, Friday, 8 February 2002 01:00 (eighteen years ago) link

Tom Cruise

Brad Pitt

Mickey Rourke

misterjones, Friday, 8 February 2002 01:00 (eighteen years ago) link

Bloody hell, "A Prayer for the Dying"! Completely forgot that masterpiece.

Of course it's a toss-up as to who does the worst Irish accent in that film - Rourke or Bob Hoskins?

Terry Shannon, Friday, 8 February 2002 01:00 (eighteen years ago) link

What about Julia Roberts? Her oirish accent was hideous.

B.Pitt's accent in Snatch is supposed to rilly good. Since I intend nevah to see this film can anyone confirm or deny?

mark s, Friday, 8 February 2002 01:00 (eighteen years ago) link

I am thinking of trying to get shot of my 10 year megacrush on Johnny Depp by going to see From Hell with his stab at a cockernee accent but I fear the crush is so ingrained that even this would not deter me.

Emma, Friday, 8 February 2002 01:00 (eighteen years ago) link

his accent is supposed to be rather good Emma, it's the girl in the film (Heather Graham???) who's accent is supposedly atrocious.

Mark S - yup, it's pretty good, shame about the film in general, which howls.

Don Cheadle's cockernee in oceans 11 is supposed to be Van Dyke-esque.

Jonnie, Friday, 8 February 2002 01:00 (eighteen years ago) link

upon watching the "from hell" section in this week's Channel 5 Movie Chart Countdown!!! RickyT and i had a fit of the outrages re. Depp's Cockernee accent. RT pointed out QUITE KORREKTLY in my opinion that US actors who are going to have a stab at the old cockernee would be well advised to sit down with Eastenders as a learning aid rather then Dick bloody Van bloody Dyke!

katie, Friday, 8 February 2002 01:00 (eighteen years ago) link

I heard Johnny Depp's cockernee being likened to Michael Caine but this was early in the morning so I was unable to figure out a) if this was meant sarcastically and b) if not, whether this was a good thing or a bad thing. Not that I care, I'm happy to shove in some earplugs and drool over his cheekbones.

Emma, Friday, 8 February 2002 01:00 (eighteen years ago) link

Thanks to the person who linked the Orson Welles Mercury Theater page while discussing my recent essay. This contains full audio files of dozens of Welles' radio productions and I've been listening to one a day ever since. One of the best things on the web!

Momus, Friday, 8 February 2002 01:00 (eighteen years ago) link

Why was "Snatch" so bad? Is it because it was "Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrells" with a slightly-different cast?

Dan Perry, Friday, 8 February 2002 01:00 (eighteen years ago) link

Dan, you just hit the nail on the head. It was exactly thay, only sillier.

chris, Friday, 8 February 2002 01:00 (eighteen years ago) link

it was miles not that, sorry. the mechanics of lockstock plot were great fun. snatch was all the same technical flourishes and style mag attitude without the encumbrance of a plot.

kind of reminds me of the difference between Indiana Jones I and II

Alan Trewartha, Friday, 8 February 2002 01:00 (eighteen years ago) link

yeah, but the plot in lock stock is pretty much waffer thin isn't it? and they look like the same film anyway.

chris, Friday, 8 February 2002 01:00 (eighteen years ago) link

Emma, I don't think it's possible to not have a crush on Johnny Depp. Even when I found out that he loves clowns and insects (two of my most despised things) I still loved the guy.

As for bad Irish accents, what do the Irish people here think about the imitation ones (or are some of you who've already commented Irish?). I remember seeing an interview with someone, maybe Julia Roberts, who had to put on an Irish accent and there was also an Australian in the movie and she was saying it would be heaps easier for the Aussie to put on the Irish accent because the Aussie was already half there, accent-wise - which is really strange seeing as Australian accents sound nothing like Irish ones whereas American ones sound quite similar to my non-Irish ears.

toraneko, Friday, 8 February 2002 01:00 (eighteen years ago) link

'citizen kane' is still lots of fun. and good too.

'the magnificent ambersons' has lots of good in despite whatever.

'the lady from shaghai' is great. all around.

'the third man', yeah, is brilliant. mainly because of welles. erm. and anton karas. & shit.

'touch of evil' is too. how about charlton as a mexican? his accent?

richard john gillanders, Friday, 8 February 2002 01:00 (eighteen years ago) link

richard john gillanders, Friday, 8 February 2002 01:00 (eighteen years ago) link

you're giving him way too much credit for the third man.

ethan, Friday, 8 February 2002 01:00 (eighteen years ago) link

Oh, _Snatch_ is just fine. Brad Pitt's anti-accent accent (AKA an accent so good it's impenetrable) is faboo. Heather Graham's was a bit ehh (but I liked _From Hell_). (Johnny is way too sexy to let such a thing like a crap accent get in his way.) Don Cheadle's accent in _Ocean's 11_ was a bit, um, interesting.

Orson Welles' late-in-life follies inspired one of the funniest bits shown on the most unfunny "Critic". (Something about frozen peas? It was funny.) His films are pretty good, too (even though _Touch of Evil_ seemed a bit ... disheveled. Or was that _Shanghai_? The one where he has a really fake beard? I saw one of those flicks in a film class after getting no sleep the night before.)

(_Shanghai_ had the funhouse mirror sequence, right?)

David Raposa, Friday, 8 February 2002 01:00 (eighteen years ago) link

The frozen peas thing was a running gag. By far the funniest thing ever to appear on that show, with the possible exception of the Siskel and Ebert episode.

Welles is classic all the way. His Macbeth is underrated and bizarre as well.

Did anyone read Simon Callow's biography? Seemed pretty snide in tone.

Justyn Dillingham, Friday, 8 February 2002 01:00 (eighteen years ago) link

Welles GOOD! Crap accents BAD!

Ned Raggett, Friday, 8 February 2002 01:00 (eighteen years ago) link

his macbeth is SO GOOD.

ethan, Friday, 8 February 2002 01:00 (eighteen years ago) link

I was watching Touch of Evil the other day. Mag-ni-fee-cent, all the way. I'll bet the Coen Brothers must have watched it a thousand times...Anyway, don't know about his performance in Lady of Shanghai, but Welles in Evil is unmatchable. Totally steals the show from Heston (so does the Russian actor playing the slimy Mexican mob boss).

Too bad Othello is kind of patchwork, that would have been another great one had he gotten backed fully & up front to film it. I can appreciate Kane historically and for its technical finesse, but I don't really relate to it.

Joe, Friday, 8 February 2002 01:00 (eighteen years ago) link

Kane, Ambersons, and the rest are all classics, but especially make the effort to track down _F For Fake_. It's the last movie Wells directed and one of the greatest episodes of mindfuckery in ANY movie. One of my faves by far!

Chris Barrus, Friday, 8 February 2002 01:00 (eighteen years ago) link

Mmmm, Orson Welles

Did he really put dye in his swimming pool to catch guests who peed while swimming?

rosemary, Friday, 8 February 2002 01:00 (eighteen years ago) link

The Trial is also good. Agree with Chris on F For Fake.

Momus, Saturday, 9 February 2002 01:00 (eighteen years ago) link

'the trial' was produced by alex salkind. he produced 'santa claus the movie' also. welles would have starred.

richard john gillanders, Saturday, 9 February 2002 01:00 (eighteen years ago) link

Forget the movies (though most are great). Best thing he did was a series of interviews he did for BBC arena (I think) shortly before he died in '85 where he talks for about 4 hours about his life. Everything you could want from an interview, comedy, red wine, pathos, insight, wicked wit, backbiting. If there's a transcript available I'd love a copy, or better still a video/dvd of the programne.

Billy Dods, Sunday, 10 February 2002 01:00 (eighteen years ago) link

i videoed [sp?] this at the time, and probably still have the video, though whether it still plays or not i don't know (as for the red wine, as I recall viewers had to supply their own sadly)

mark s, Sunday, 10 February 2002 01:00 (eighteen years ago) link

I also have the prog on tape, from its original showing, so I can't vouch for the quality (it's a little frightening to realise you still have vidtapes from the early 1980s, some of the unwatched!) But if you're interested, email offlist and I can prob. get a copy made.

Has anyone read the Callow bk on OW(and did they ever publish his vol. 2)? The Thomson, of course, is superb - I love the way that DT swings between being incredibly tough-minded and adoringly effusive.

Andrew L, Sunday, 10 February 2002 01:00 (eighteen years ago) link

Robin Carmody, Sunday, 10 February 2002 01:00 (eighteen years ago) link

his accent is supposed to be rather good Emma

It is only 'good' when compared with Heather Graham's. It sounds kind of Australian, which who knows is maybe how eastenders sounded back then, seeing as how that's where the Australian accents derives from (so I'm told and it certainly sounds that way when you think about it). Apparently, the real life Depp character was from Dorset or somewhere but the studios vetoed this bit of obsessive detail-following on the grounds that it would be TOO WEIRD (for Depp or audiences, I'm not sure).

N., Monday, 11 February 2002 01:00 (eighteen years ago) link

That Dorset accent is horribly odd.

F is for Fake -- great mindfuck, partly because it appears that he's hellbent on deconstructing his own cinematic authority when in fact he's doing the OPPOSITE (viz. his locating himself in the editing room) - his capricious excursions and tangents from whatever loose plot there is only underline his ultimate control. especially vis-a-vis the half-naked girls who show up from time to time.

'F for Fake' is super awesome, I imagine you're watching the new Criterion edition of the film? Make sure you check out the extras on disc 2, specifically 'One Man Band'. I taped that off of BBC telly around '95 and was totally mesmerized by it. When I bought the Criterion discs the liner notes hinted that 'One Man Band' was modeled after 'F for Fake' in that it was full of trickery and outright lies. Watching it again now on the DVD, I can now see (some of) the lies, but the sheer genius of the man can not be denied. And hats off to Oja Kodar for making a film that does him justice.

Stunned by the criticism of Tim Holt's performance in Ambersons itt and others. That's one of the most inspired casting choices ever, and a brilliant performance - the type of second/third generation inherited wealthy kid, totally oblivious, entitled, insulated, and crucially - fey and feckless, emasculated. The way his voice cracks when he's angry. His stubborn indignance and ignorance. I kept thinking about Brett Kavanaugh watching Holt in Ambersons. It's a type I recognize from school but rarely depicted in movies, as far as I know.

Yesterday was the first time I saw it, fantastic and better than Kane at points, but those last 20-30 minutes hurt so much.

The Mark Cousins' documentary THE EYES OF ORSON WELLES is currently available to stream or download on the BBC iplayer.

Last year at the Edinburgh Festival Cousins' helped put on a small but pleasing selection of Welles' art - drawings, sketches, cartoons, paintings, storyboards etc. Welles definitely had some flair for illustration - there was one spectacularly bad oil painting of Don Quixote.

Apparently Orson Welles's flair for art was what got him involved in theatre at the age of 16. After he talked his dad into letting him come to Ireland to practise his art, he wound up involved at the Ambassador theatre claiming to be a well known actor from the States.

Theorbo Goes Wild (James Redd and the Blecchs), Friday, 8 March 2019 15:02 (one year ago) link

The 1939 Welles radio adap of Ambersons on the Criterion is quite something -- only an hour (probably 45 mins w/out the Campbell Soup ads), Orson plays Georgie Minafer seemingly on the edge of hysteria. There's stuff he carries over to the film -- the townspeople chorus have nearly the exact lines, and they sing "The Man Who Broke the Bank at Monte Carlo" on the sleigh ride (in Tarkington's book it was The Star-Spangled Banner). Walter Huston plays Eugene Morgan. Ray Collins is the uncle as he is in the movie. No Aunt Fanny!

The other supps delineate almost exhaustively who directed and DP'd what scenes (OW's *business manager* even got in on the reshoot action). Bernard Herrmann was the only collaborator who had his name taken off it in protest, after they fucked with his music by cutting huge swaths of it out (along w/ whole scenes).

Welles had a voice and he knew how to make the most of it. If you had another actor reproduce every vocal inflection in that performance, but an actor with a voice less resonant, with a different timbre, and it would sound unbearably artificial.
