Orson, The Ring and the Soldier...

Dressed in a magic man's outfit, Orson Welles feigns surprise when a soldier the audience steps onto the stage and finds his missing ring high upon the garter of Orson's beautiful assistant. It's all part of the actor's magic show where he reveals his feats of legerdemain and prestidigitation. His second wife, Rita Hayworth, is seen here assisting him at a USO event in the 1940's.
