Orson Welles's tongue-in-cheek look at famous fakes studies art forger Elmyr de Hory, Howard Hughes pseudo-biographer Clifford Irving, supposed Picasso muse Oja Kodar, and, finally, himself, from his WAR OF THE WORLDS radio broadcast to the accusation that he stole a writer's credit on CITIZEN KANE. This was one of Welles's last films, and though it defies easy categorization, no Welles fan should miss it.

Notes

This was Orson Welles's last film. The Criterion Collection laserdisc transfer was created from a 35mm intermediate negative. The sound was mastered from the original 35mm magnetic soundtrack master. The laserdisc also includes the never-released promotional trailer.
