Born On This Day — May 6, 1915

'The Trail' (1962)
Filming The Trial (1962)

I liked the cinema better before I began to do it. Now I can’t stop myself from hearing the clappers at the beginning of each shot. All the magic is destroyed.

A poet needs a pen, a painter a brush, and a director an army.

I passionately hate the idea of being with it; I think an artist has always to be out of step with his time.

 —Orson Welles
