Orson Welles - The Orson Welles Sketchbook (1955)

Orson Welles' BBC series is basically a bunch of monologues by Welles, with some illustrations by Welles, about -- theatre; theatre critics; voodoo magic used to kill theatre critics; bullfighting; customs officers; the false nose; and many other topics, all connected to Welles' career in film, theatre and radio.

Very very funny, charming as hell, and an absolute must for Wellesians.
