Orson Welles performs Russian Roulette on The Orson Welles’ Show

This clip from the unaired pilot of “The Orson Welles Show”. The pacing and laugh track is so unusual that I think the show must have been heavily edited. Still even though it is odd, it is very watchable.

  1. That was absolutely incredible, Retroist, wonderful find! I would have watched this show rabidly as I did Ripley’s Believe It or Not with Jack Palance!

    @Brian I agree with you, friend. F For Fake is a wonderful, wonderful, ‘documentary’. It is a great shame that the world never received his version of Don Quixote.
