Orson Welles on Film

SRT’s free Monday night film series explores Welles’ contributions to cinema as screenwriter, producer, director, actor, and independent producer. Stanford faculty and guests will introduce films directed by, and often starring, Orson Welles: Citizen Kane, The Magnificent Ambersons, Othello, Chimes at Midnight, The Lady from Shanghai, and The Trial. We conclude our series with The Third Man, directed by the great British director Carol Reed, based on a short novel by Graham Greene, in which Welles creates the Harry Lime character, whom he later made popular on the radio!
