Every true artist must, in his own way, be a magician, a charlatan.~~ Orson Welles
In Radio Girl, Orson Welles does a magic trick for Cecelia. While this scene is a bit of fiction, Mr. Welles actually did enjoy performing magic tricks in real life, and from what I’ve read he was very good at it.
He even once began a film project about magic and magicians. Here’s more about that and Orson’s love of magic from an interview in the Film Journal archives.
