Orson Welles direction and his performance as Shakespeare's legendary Falstaff are at the center of this conversation about Chimes at Midnight, Welles' 1965 film masterpiece that was unavailable to the public for decades. Professors Jim Kearney (UC Santa Barbara) and Joseph McBride (San Francisco State University) discuss Welles' lifelong admiration of the Bard and the film's complicated production and distribution history. The two professors also explore Welles' ambitious adaptation of story material from five different Shakespeare plays into this single film.
