Lawrence has just posted these two fascinating items on the News page: a letter from Welles to Bogdanovich, and an article by Bogdanovich. But I recall a while ago that Oja Kodar revealed that Welles actually wrote an article around that time (1970) that was attributed to another: it was either "Is It True What They Say About Orson?" or it was Richard Wilson's "Rough Sledding with Pauline Kael". I also seem to recall another Wilson article from that period: "It's Not All True".
Does anyone remember which one Kodar said Welles wrote? If it is the Bogdanovich, then it is a very candid look at how the artist saw himself as an artist, and his relative importance.
