F for Fake in the UK; A Radio Prank
I've only recently seen over on the Criterion Forum forum that the excellent UK label Masters of Cinema will be releasing F for Fake, and that this release will include an interview with critic/Welles scholar Jonathan Rosenbaum; no date was given. Considering their usual high standard of work, this should be a very good release.
And, in a lighter vein, while doing research yesterday, I came across this tidbit in a Variety news column: "Orson Welles, guesting on the Philip Morris 'Playhouse' last Friday night (16) pulled the old spare-script gag on Charles Martin, director of the show. With only a few seconds until air time, Welles 'accidentally' dropped his script, the pages scattering across the stage. While Martin frantically yelled for the cast to gather up the fallen pages and simultaneously told a couple of supporting players to give Welles their scripts, the Columbia Playhouse 3 audience was in a frenzy of excitement and laughter. Just as the show was about due on the air, Welles pulled another copy of the script from an inside coat pocket and proceeded with the broadcast."
