The Orson Welles Show - Unaired Pilot 1979

 
THE SOBs AT YOUTUBE REMOVED THIS GREAT VIDEO
 

Orson Welles would have made a perfect talk show host. Welles was a genius who knew how deliver lines with eloquence and humor. Filming for this pilot began in September 1978 and was completed around February 1979, so this was not filmed before an audience in one night like the Tonight Show. Welles said of the project, "It was frankly an attempt to enter the commercial field and earn my living as a talk show host. It was just a flop, that's all, nobody wanted it." Just goes to show you the people that made decisions to air programs had no imagination, I would have loved to see this show when it was first made, but at least we have a record of it we can enjoy.
