4 Shots From 4 Films is just what it says it is, 4 shots from 4 of our favorite films. As opposed to the reviews and recaps that we usually post, 4 Shots From 4 Films lets the visuals do the talking!
As you can probably guess from my pen name and my profile pic, Joseph Cotten is one of my favorite actors. Born 115 years ago on this day, Cotten may be best known for his association with Orson Welles but he worked with several great directors over the years. Along with playing Jedediah Leland in Welles’s Citizen Kane, he starred in Hitchcock’s Shadow of a Doubt and Carol Reed’s The Third Man. Even while his film career was flourishing, Cotten continued to appear on the Broadway stage and, during the early days of television, he frequently appeared on anthology series, the majority of which were broadcast live. Cotten even had a memorable cameo in Michael Cimino’s infamous film, Heaven’s Gate.
In honor of Cotten’s birthday, here are four shots from four of his best films.
