Sources & Notes

Saturday Evening Post ad from Motion Picture Herald, Jan. 20, 1940.

I wrote about three trips Orson Welles made to Dallas in the article “Orson Welles in Dallas — 1934-1940”: in 1934 as an unknown teenage actor, in 1936 with his dazzling “Black Macbeth,” and in 1940 on a break from working on “Citizen Kane” to deliver a college lecture (and to nip down to San Antonio to meet H. G. Wells, author of The War of the Worlds).
