In 1941, Orson Welles co-wrote, directed and starred in the all-time classic Citizen Kane. Robert Wise was his editor.
By 1979, Wise had become an Oscar-winning director, and he was overseeing what was, at that time, one of the most expensive movies ever made: Star Trek: The Motion Picture. Welles, meanwhile, hadn’t directed a Hollywood movie in decades, and was reduced to taking bit parts and voice-over roles to make ends meet. Among his jobs: narrating the teaser for Wise’s sci-fi blockbuster.
