Orson Welles was born in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on May 6, 1915. He is regarded as a pioneer in both radio and films. Before going in for the radio shows, he started his career as a proficient stage actor.
One of his most memorable radio works is his version of H.G. Well’s War of the Worlds. His artistically outstanding works have been left in Hollywood in the form of The Magnificent Ambersons and Citizen Kane.
He was nominated for nine academy awards for Citizen Kane, which is regarded as a revolutionary work of art. It earned the best screenplay award that year.
Many pioneering techniques were introduced in the movie, like the use of deep- focus cinematography to present the details sharply.
The film was anchored with several low- angle shots that described the story with multiple points of view. It is still considered one of the greatest movies ever made.
He died on October 10, 1985, in Los Angeles due to a Heart Attack.
