In James Naremore's THE MAGIC WORLD OF ORSON WELLES, there are excerpts from an article Welles wrote for a British publication in the early 50's. I don't know if it's one of the articles in question, but it's interesting. It's about Fritz Mandl, an Austrian arms tycoon said to have been involved in the rise of both Hitler and Mussolini. It's also believed he was one of the models Welles used for the character of Gregory Arkadin. After the war Mandl had found refuge in Juan and Eva Peron's fascist regime in Argentina, and became their chief weapons manufacturer. Welles' article depicts Mandl relaxing on a European lake, perhaps there to strengthen relations between Argentina and Franco's Spain.
