Orson Welles, flamboyant, gruff, incisive as a director and actor in this famous murder mystery movie.
The scenes I worked in were all shot at night in the Venice Beach vicinity(that’s the city of Venice in California next to Santa Monica).
The exquisite arches on Windward St were turned into the Mexican Border town where Charlton Heston and Janet Leigh strolled until suddenly they were stunned by the loud fiery car explosion. That’s also where I have one of the few shots in which you can see me clearly… 🙂 . I was booked there for 3 nights…. it was summer and the climate was pleasantly warm despite the cooling Pacific breezes. I always enjoyed working with and watching Janet Leigh and Charlton Heston two of the best artists in the Hollywood community in their role interpretations.
