Orson Welles was a dear friend of Merv Griffin but was a notoriously guarded interviewee. He told Merv he wasn't interested in taking "trips down memory lane." On October 10, 1985 he told Merv he was "feeling expansive" and to go ahead and ask him all those "gossipy" questions he'd always wanted to ask him on the air. Merv took the opportunity and Orson Welles opened up about his personal life like never before and, as fate would have it, never again. He died a few hours after the show at his home in Hollywood, making this interview his final words to the world. Merv Griffin had over 5000 guests appear on his show from 1963-1986.
