Hootenanny of Pain

The magnificence of the Orson began in 1934.

Contrary to popular belief... Welles' first movie wasn't Citizen Kane.

It was this:
Hearts of Age

A brief, bizarre short film he made with Virginia Nicholson when he was 18 or so. Here, it's presented with commentary by critic Jeffrey Lyons.

I first saw this about six years ago at Cinematheque in Toronto, where they were having a Welles retrospective. At the end of this, the host of the retrospective quipped, "Yes, and his next film was Citizen Kane."
