Orson Welles mocked Hemingway’s cliched idea of Spain

“Now you have the picture of the Spanish civil war being projected on the screen and these two heavy figures swinging away at each other and missing most of the time. The lights came up. We looked at each other, burst into laughter and became great friends.”

– Orson Welles, on his relationship with Ernest Hemingway
From Dr Matthew Asprey Gear’s new book At the End of the Street in the Shadow: Orson Welles and the City.
