We can’t say enough good things about Biblioklept, and not only because they find so many literature-related gems. (A few recent examples: Raymond Carver’s correspondence with editor Gordon Lish, Melville’s Passport Application, A Post-Rapture Reading List). They also find great material from other art forms — for example this clip of Orson Welles doing a magic trick, taken from the 1995 documentary Orson Welles: The One Man Band.
Watch to the end. As you might expect, the master upstages his co-star, flapping wings and all.
