Around The World With Orson Welles Blu-Ray

Around The World With Orson Welles Blu-Ray
In 1955, the celebrated polymath Orson Welles was invited to write, direct and present his first television production - a series of travelogues exploring Europe. Part home-movie, part cinematic essay, each episode of Around the World with Orson Welles takes the viewer on a fascinating journey to meet famous people and explore the continent's most romantic cities. In Paris, we are introduced to artists and poets: in Madrid, we attend a bullfight; and in Vienna, in an episode which was long believed lost, we are taken to the locations of The Third Man. A unique and enthralling entry in the career of one of modern cinema's most revered figures, Welles' masterful series finally receives it premiere on Blu-ray, and is accompanied by some rare and fascinating extra features.
