I got only one. (Guess which) Other than that, I have only really heard of Touch of Evil as Welles' only other work. And I consider myself a film buff. Kinda sad for me.
Apr 12th, 2009 at 04:45 GMT
I fervently wanted to type in "Rikki-Tikki Tavi", since it was my perennial choice of movie to watch when I had to stay home from school sick. then I saw it was only movies he directed :(
Apr 12th, 2009 at 04:56 GMT
One of the best! A legend.
Apr 12th, 2009 at 05:12 GMT
No "F For Fake"??
Apr 12th, 2009 at 05:30 GMT
Great quiz! Agree with MrSumada -- F For Fake should be included. Or at least a bonus answer if you don't want to include documentaries.
Apr 12th, 2009 at 06:12 GMT
I always thought he directed The Third Man, so I was shocked to discover that wasn't the case.

The Third Man might be a good idea for a bonus answer. It's one of the most iconic of all Welles' films.
Apr 12th, 2009 at 07:38 GMT
F for Fake should definitely count, as should The Immortal Story. Both were finished and released in theatres. Please, don't make The Third Man a bonus answer. Great as Welles's contribution to that movie may be, it is as an actor, only, and the great Carol Reed deserves more credit for directing the movie than he usually receives.

In my heart, this will always be Orson's finest hour: http://ubu.wfmu.org/sound/365/03/365-Days-Project-03-01-welles-orson-frozen-peas-spot.mp3 "Here under protest is beef burgers." It's pretty much the best thing ever. Followed by this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1hliTwpIGeA ...Okay, I'm done. Orson was freakin' awesome.
Apr 12th, 2009 at 09:13 GMT
It is hard not be reminded of the satire by the British show Spitting Image where Welles reveals that he lived his life backwards inspired by the fact that he began his career with what is often acclaimed as the greatest film ever made & ended it as the voice-over on beer commercials!
Apr 12th, 2009 at 09:57 GMT
I agree that The Third Man should not be a bonus answer.............but then maybe the picture on the title page should not be from said movie?
Apr 12th, 2009 at 11:32 GMT
No 'F For Fake'? Absurd. It's like not including 'This is Spinal Tap' on a Rob Reiner quiz because it's a 'documentary'. And I have no idea why they've not included 'The Immortal Story'.
Apr 12th, 2009 at 14:39 GMT
Perhaps Don Quixote should be a bonus answer (perhaps even War of the Worlds).
Apr 12th, 2009 at 18:13 GMT
I would have preferred Orson Welles' acting credits.
Apr 12th, 2009 at 20:52 GMT
It was the peak of my ass-getting career and it happened way too early. You're like Orson Welles. EXACTLY! Now I know why Orson Welles ate his fat ass to death!

wow, people voted down my comment? Obviously they don't know it was a quote from Superbad. nobody should vote down a Superbad quote.

@The Snakes: I wondered that, too, along with that Nostradamus movie. Then I realized this was the list of movies he directed, not acted in.
Apr 13th, 2009 at 17:41 GMT
I asked the admins to add `The Immortal Story' (I'd not realised it had been released in cinemas) and `F For Fake' (no idea why I missed that off) but it's not happened yet. I guess they're busy or something.
Apr 14th, 2009 at 02:18 GMT
I remember him most for his awesome voice both in commercials (Paul Masson wine) and when he narrated the black&white tv episode of Moonlighting w/Bruce Willis & Cybil Shepard.
Apr 14th, 2009 at 05:31 GMT
I only got one, and I only got one last year too and I only expect to get one next year....at this rate I will get them all.....in sixty years........
Apr 15th, 2009 at 13:52 GMT
You didn't include "The Long Hot Summer" (Paul Newman. Joanne Woodward, and Orson Welles)?
Apr 17th, 2009 at 10:22 GMT
@brien: These are movies directed by Welles: he only acted in `The Long Hot Summer'.
May 5th, 2009 at 02:48 GMT
There should be way more bonus answers: Fountain of Youth, Don Quixote, Hearts of Age, and even maybe The Other Side of the Wind.
Oct 6th, 2009 at 19:21 GMT
Good quiz. I thought he directed Third Man, too, haha.
Nov 19th, 2009 at 04:58 GMT
Good quiz. If you do decide to throw in some bonus answers such as The Hearts of Age, etc. also consider Too Much Johnson. It was made to be shown along with live actors on stage to bring together both film and theatre. It was never shown publicly and was later lost in a fire in Welles home. It was the first film with Joseph Cotton.
