Making Movies With Orson Welles
A MemoirBook - 2008
In 1958, after viewing the noir classic Touch of Evil, Gary Graver decided he wanted to direct films. He spent many years honing his craft, as both a cinematographer and a director, not to mention writer, actor, and producer-much like his idol, Orson Welles. In 1970, Graver impulsively called the famed director and offered him his services as a cameraman. It was only the second time in Welles's career that he had received such an offer from a cinematographer, the other being from Gregg Toland, who worked on one of the greatest films ever, Citizen Kane.
