We conclude Shakespeare September with our look at Orson Welles's Othello. Filmed over a period of four years, the production was plagued with financial problems but ultimately proved a triumph of ingenuity over resources. The second of Welles's Shakespeare films, Othello is yet another of his works that has been tampered with.

We're joined by Welles scholar Joseph McBride of our Magnificent Ambersons and Executive Actionepisodes and we talk to Samantha White of the Shakespeare in Detroit company.
