orson-welles-is buried in rondaORSON Welles hated Ernest Hemingway’s macho interpretation of Spain, a previously unseen 1973 manuscript has revealed.

Welles wrote the script, Crazy Weather, which features an unflattering bullfighting aficionado character based on Hemingway.

“It’s really critical of that type of American aficionado of the bullfighting, seeking ways to display his masculinity,” according to Dr Matthew Asprey Gear, the academic who unearthed the document.

Welles and Hemingway traded blows during the making of film The Spanish Earth, after the author called the director ‘a faggot’.
