Description by

Orson Welles produced, wrote, directed and starred in Mr. Arkadin, a psychological thriller in which he uses the revolutionary camera angles, overlapping dialogue and storytelling techniques he pioneered in Citizen Kane.

Like Welles' earlier masterpiece, Mr. Arkadin is a film that tries to piece together the fragments of a man's life. Welles stars as the wealthy and powerful financier George Arkadin, a self-made man who claims to have no memory of his past. He hires a young American, Guy Van Stratten (Robert Arden), to investigate his life history. Van Stratten travels across Europe, encountering a gallery of international grotesques, all of whom have stories to tell about Arkadin's past - and all of whom soon mysteriously die. As Van Stratten pieces together the pieces of Arkadin's life, the more it appears that he may become the next one to die.

Financed by oversea sources, Mr. Arkadin was also shot abroad with a remarkable international cast over the course of two years and ultimately released in Europe in 1955 as Confidential Agent. It took a further seven years of financing and post production before it was released in the US as Mr. Arkadin in 1962.
