Black Magic (1949), starring Orson Welles, Nancy Guild, Akim Tamiroff

Review of Black Magic

Orson Welles‘ performance in Black Magic is absolutely riveting.  It’s a must-see performance.  He plays the role of the charlatan Cagliostro with gusto, and style.  Welles moves the audience from sympathy for the character to disgust for some of his actions, and back to sympathy.  The other performers also do an excellent job. But it’s Welles performance that makes Black Magic a must-see movie.
