Orson Welles reading Walt Whitman.

“Powell was in love with Kerr when they were making the film, and one feels delicate shadings of chemistry in every scene between her and Powell surrogate Livesey. Indeed, there’s a kind of special, surreptitious charge between and among all three actors. Powell wrote that, in the course of making the film, ‘I learnt from Anton what an artist is. I learnt from Roger what a man is. I learnt from Deborah what love is.’”

— Molly Haskell, The Life and Death and Life of Colonel Blimp
