Orson Welles papers on Magic

Postby Bill Mullins » August 25th, 2016, 11:59 am

Oja Kodar was a Croatian actress who was Orson Welles's partner during the last years of his life. When he died, she inherited his estate.

In 2015, she sold a bunch of his papers to the University of Michigan, which already had a large Orson Welles collection. Included is a small amount of material relevant to Welles's interest in magic:

And while we're at it, here is an old interview with Jim Steinmeyer about working with Welles.

Welles's final interview with Merv Griffin, discussed in the interview, is here. Unfortunately, the clip does not include the card trick.
