Orson Welles Last Interview

Written by Joe D on October 16th, 2011


I just ran across this on Youtube the other day. Orson Welles last interview, on the Merv Griffin show. I guess Orson was friendly with Merv, he was always on his show.  I had heard that Orson was at a fancy banquet, left went home and stopped at Pink’s hot dog stand on La Brea. Then he went home with two chili dogs, ate them and expired. A little research reveals the source of this myth, supposedly Welles held the record for hot dog consumption at Pink’s – 18 of them!


But here he is on TV  about two hours before he passed. Check it out, see the great man in his last moments on planet Earth.
