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.
