Orson and Micheál Mac Liammóir in Othello. 1952.

Had he by some miracle made it this far, today would have been the Boy Wonder’s 100th birthday. So let’s celebrate Orson a little bit. As Marlene Dietrich put it, “he was a great, great man and a genius. People should cross themselves before they speak his name.”

I hate embedding video on this site so go to the 29-minute mark here to see Orson’s Mentalism Spot on David Copperfield’s first TV special. 1978.

And check out these magazine covers and the rest of the Orson archive.
