Orson Welles shows us how to “Falstaff”

The sort of simple, indulgent reveries you could find on TV variety shows back in their Golden Age, turning over the camera and six minutes of your show to Orson Welles to improvise his way up to Sir John, Shakespeare’s lines long committed to memory. This is from about 1968, a few years after Welles’ Falstaff film, “Chimes at Midnight,” one of the many Welles TV appearances preserved on Youtube.
