Image of the day. Orson Welles in "The Adventures of Tintin"

A joshing jab at the great auteur in the English adaptation of Red Rackham’s Treasure.

From the Leslie Lonsdale-Cooper and Michael Turner's 1959 translation of Hergé's Red Rackham's Treasure (1945).

A wonderful adaptation of Hergé's original joke on Sacha Guitry:

“Periscope Cinema.” That is abso-freakin’-lutely outstanding as dig at and homage to Orson Welles as can be imagined. Very astute reference to the deep focus film photography technique, or to Orson’s own thoughts of himself (or both).
