About the Book:

A Wildly Fictional Account of How Orson Welles Learned Everything About the Art of Cinematography in Half an Hour or Was it a Weekend?

The Citizen Kane Crash Course in Cinematography brings to life the 60-plus year Urban Legend of the infamous weekend between Orson Welles and the Oscar winning cinematographer, Gregg Toland (Wuthering Heights, Citizen Kane).

Guaranteed to provoke controversy as it instructs and entertains, this "graphic textbook" deftly merges the fictionalized account of an Orson Welles and Gregg Toland Hollywood weekend with all of the basic ABCs of cinematography.

What people say:

"David Worth has written a bawdy and fun-filled account of how Orson Welles may have learned the art of Cinematography during one wonderful lost weekend. If it didn't happen this way, it should have." — David S. Ward, Academy Award winning Writer: The Sting, Writer/Director: Major League

"This is a 'graphic textbook' that de-mystifies the black art of Cinematography, and a fascinating fantasy of Orson Welles' approach to shooting Citizen Kane. David Worth makes accessible what has always been a mystery to the student and the layman." — John Badham, Director: Saturday Night Fever, Wargames, Point of No Return

"An absolute cinematic page turner." — Dennis Hopper, Actor/Director
