Agreed, it's another entertaining and illuminating article. I've seen the Munich museum's abreviated assembly of THE MAGIC SHOW, and frankly, it had me scratching my head a bit, but your interview with Dickson makes more clear what Welles' intentions would have been. Very interesting that for the completed version of the film Welles would have included scenes from some of his old movies where he played a magician- there were quite a few of them. Here's hoping Munich can get a more complete version done sometime. I'd also like to see that TV special ORSON WELLES AT THE MAGIC CASTLE if it's available anywhere.
What you're doing is great. As you say in the Caveney article, few of the many people whose lives Welles touched are being interviewed by anybody. Thinking of the Robert Arden thread, it's great that R. Kadin is interviewing Arden's widow, but isn't it a shame that it can't be Arden himself.
BTW, for anyone interested, here's a synopsis of an excellent Genii magazine article from Feb. 2000 called ORSON WELLES THE MAGICIAN, from the old tierranet board.
