Screened. Mr. Arkadin (Confidential Report). Orson Welles, 1955. A prop photo album portraying the young Grigori Arkadin, a Georgian mobster with “amnesia” who hires an American expat cigarette smuggler to dig out his past. This second-unit shot depicts Arkadin as a young man, and apparently uses a photo of the young Welles (heavily re-touched) with the inscription in Polish which reads: “Ukochaneniu skarbulkovi, twoj na zawsze, Waclaw.” (Approximate translation: To a treasured sweetheart, yours forever, Wenceslas.)
