Summary
"In late autumn 1968, callow youth Dorian Bond was charged with travelling to Yugoslavia to deliver cigars and film stock to legendary Hollywood director Orson Welles. The pair soon struck up an unlikely friendship, and Welles offered Bond the role of his personal assistant - as well as a part in his next movie. No formal education could prepare him for the journey that would ensue. This witty and fascinating memoir follows Welles, with Bond in tow, across Europe during the late 1960s as they travel through Italy and France visiting beautiful cities, staying at luxury hotels, eating in legendary restaurants, and reminiscing about Winston Churchill and Franklin Roosevelt, among others, and famous movie stars like Rita Hayworth, Laurence Olivier, Marlene Dietrich, Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor, Charlton Heston and Steve McQueen. Set against the backdrop of the student riots of '68, the Vietnam War, the Manson killings, the rise of Roman Polanski, the Iron Curtain, and Richard Nixon's presidency, Me and Mr Welles brings to life a fascinating period in history ... and one of cinema's most charismatic characters."--
