Orson Welles’ Final Moments

Above, you can watch Orson Welles’ last inter­view and pub­lic appear­ance. The clip brings you back to Octo­ber 10, 1985, when the great film­mak­er, then 70 years old, appeared on the Merv Grif­fin show and talked a good deal about aging and his aging gen­er­a­tion. Just two hours lat­er, Welles would die of a heart attack at his Los Ange­les home. The clip is added to our YouTube Favorites in a sen­ti­men­tal kind of way.
