* DownerEnding : Welles' refusal to pay even token fealty to TheHaysCode and its insistence on happy endings was a problem on ''Film/TheMagnificentAmbersons''. His films are generally pessimistic and dark, but done with such style that they are entertaining nevertheless. The only truly happy movie of his, is ''Film/FForFake''.

On account of Orson Welles' huge itinerant life and career, a definitive single volume biography of his whole life is pretty elusive. So far researchers have managed to establish with a good degree of authority Welles' early career in books like ''Young Orson: The Years of Luck and Genius on the Path to Citizen Kane'' by Patrick [=McGilligan=]. Robert S. Carringer's books on the production of ''Citizen Kane'' and the full publication of the shooting script of ''The Magnificent Ambersons'' are key works on his transition from stage to film, and insightful on Welles' production methods. Welles also left behind important oral histories, books of interviews, such as Creator/PeterBogdanovich's ''This is Orson Welles''. 2013 saw the addition of two more books: ''My Lunches With Orson'' (by Henry Jaglom, which gives a rare insight into late-period Welles as well as having him far more uncensored, candid, and off-the-cuff than he usually is in other interviews), and ''Orson Welles and Roger Hill: A Friendship in Three Acts'' by Todd Tarbox (which chronicles the decade long friendship Welles had with his headmaster and mentor Roger Hill). But much like many of the characters in his movies, there's no last word written on Orson yet.
