Orson Welles & Henry Jaglom

Filmmaker Henry Jaglom serves as host for this look at his relationship with friend and colleague Orson Welles, with whom Jaglom shared taped lunch conversations during a period from 1981 until a few days before Welles' death in 1985. The tapes became the basis of Peter Biskind's 2013 book, My Lunches with Orson: Conversations Between Henry Jaglom and Orson Welles.

Along with Jaglom's reminiscences, TCM is showcasing a pair of films from each director. Welles' masterpiece Citizen Kane (1941) is followed by his stylized documentary F for Fake (1973), about fraudulent practices by a number of individuals including Welles himself. Jaglom's unconventional drama Someone to Love (1987) features a group of artistic types, including Welles (in his last screen performance) and Jaglom, who meet in a deserted theater to talk about loneliness and other issues. Also showing is Jaglom's Eating (1990), a "serious comedy" in which women at a party talk about their relationships with food.
