Orson Welles’ Criticisms of Fellow Actors and Directors Found on Lost Tapes–The Guardian/Observer (UK)

“Laurence Olivier was “stupid”, Spencer Tracy “hateful” and Charlie Chaplin “arrogant”, and he could not even bear to look at Bette Davis. James Stewart was a “bad actor”, Joan Fontaine had “two expressions, and that’s it”, and Norma Shearer was “one of the most minimally talented ladies to appear on the silver screen”.”

Superb.
