How tasteless is the liquor drunk in the evening after you’ve done a production entirely by the book, making absolutely no changes to the stage directions or speeches. In contrast, how incredibly delicious is the liquor drunk on a day in which you’ve shot things that aren’t in the script. Oshima Nagisa (via thesoviette) Sunday Sep 28 12:18pm

And as he wandered on, unconsciously heading in the direction of his apartment, he found himself not far from the dark, rather disreputable street where less than twenty-four hours ago he had followed that abandoned creature to her tawdry yet comfortable lodgings. But why should she particularly be thought of as abandoned? Or this particular street be called disreputable? Curious how, seduced by words, again and again one labels and condemns people, destinies and streets through sheer idle force of habit.

Orson Welles meets Jack Nicholson, circa 1976, courtesy of Will McCrabb.

In 1971, director Henry Jaglom was in hot pursuit of the legendary Orson Welles. Jaglom desperately wanted Welles to star in his feature debut, A Safe Place, opposite Jack Nicholson, and flew to the Plaza Hotel in New York to make his pitch. Welles agreed — the prospect of getting to wear a magician’s cape was the selling point — and a most unexpected friendship blossomed. —My Lunches with Orson: Conversations Between Henry Jaglom and Orson Welles

Peter Biskind records the exchange in his introduction to My Lunches with Orson. Welles came to Jaglom during a break:

“You’re the arrogant kid who pushed me into this. How’s your arrogance doing?”

“Not very well. The crew hates me. They’re totally negative. Everything I tell them to shoot, they say, ‘It won’t cut,’ or ‘it’s not in the script.’ I have to fight to get every single shot. I’m exhausted.”

“Oh my God, I should have prepared you. Tell ‘em it’s a dream sequence.”

“What?”

“Just do as I tell you. Trust me. You trusted me enough to hire me. Do it.”

Jaglom took Welles’ advice and got results. He went back to Welles:

“What the fuck is this? Everything I want to do, I say, ‘Dream sequence,’ and they’re pussycats.”

“You have to understand, these are people who work hard for a living. They have tough lives. Structured lives. They work all day, then they have dinner, put their kids to bed, go to sleep, and get back to the set at five o’clock the next morning. Everything else in life except for dreams has rules.” —Henry Jaglom and Orson Welles, On Screen: A Safe Place and Someone to Love

Here’s a rarity: A Safe Place outtakes with Orson Welles; never-before-seen footage of Henry Jaglom’s feature debut featuring Tuesday Weld, Orson Welles and Jack Nicholson.
