I was thinking about stories I would have liked to see get the Welles treatment. I know he had numerous stories he wanted to adapt to film, but I don't think I've read these stories on his list. They would have been great Welles movies.
Shirley Jackson--"The Lottery"
Nathaniel Hawthorne--"Young Goodman Brown"
George Orwell--"Nineteen Eighty-Four"
Charlotte Perkins Gilman--"The Yellow Wallpaper"
Edgar Allen Poe--"The Cask of the Amontillado"
I know my list is kind of strange to say the least. But, Welles had a flair for adapting great short stories for radio, so I know he was great at adapting them to screen. He was great at tackling the weird and strange. I know he did a few of Poe's stories on the radio. Also he did Louise Fletcher's, "The Hitch Hiker".
But, I would have liked to see these haunting stories on the screen directed by Welles. He had that touch for creating the mood, the fear, and the horror like in, "The Lady From Shanghai" and, "The Stranger".
The Orwell story would have been just fantastic I think. Welles was interested in politics, and I think this story would have been right up his alley!
EDIT: I would like to see if there are any suggestions for stories you would have liked to see Welles tackle....
