Orson Wells describes social proof on the Dick Cavett show

Winston Churchill nodded his head in greeting to the famous director-radio host Orson Welles as they passed each other in a crowded restaurant.

Welles was trying to obtain money for a movie project from a wealthy theater financier.  Upon reaching their table, the financier turned to Welles and said, “You know Winston Churchill?” to which Welles acknowledged, “Yes, I knew him during the War in a humble capacity.”

Needless to say, the lunch went very well for Welles and he was able to obtain the money he needed from the financier.

The next day, Welles saw Churchill again – this time on the beach of the resort they were both staying.

Welles approached the great man to tell him of the positive impact of Churchill’s head nod the day before in the restaurant.  

Churchill’s response is classic, VERY memorable and VERY funny.
