This Episode & Orson Welles Helped Me Discover Thomas Wolfe
Almost 48 years later, I well remember this distinctly excellent episode. Orson Welles poignant and relevant quotes from Thomas Wolfe's last novel "You Can't Go Home Again" were a significant highlight, as well as the superb actors' characterizations.
I was then a senior in high school and went onto read most of Wolfe's works. "You Can't Go Home Again" has been a deep influence in my life so far, and an inspiration. I still hear Welles intoning the excerpts, especially the finale, one of the greatest endings in American Literature.
A great example of our "telling vision" (aka TV) inspiring one to discover other Art!
