George Orson Welles (1915 – 1985) was an American actor, director, writer, and producer who worked in theatre, radio, and film. He is remembered for his innovative work in all three: in theatre, most notably Caesar (1937), a Broadway adaptation of William Shakespeare's Julius Caesar; in radio, the legendary 1938 BROADCAST "The War of the Worlds"; and in film, Citizen Kane (1941), consistently ranked as one of the greatest films ever made.--Wikipedia
