Old Orson Welles unfinished film being completed.
Interesting information on a film Orson Welles began but never finished back in the 1970's. Peter Bogdanovich is going to complete it. This wasn't Welles last film, he did others after this but he lost control over the project and may have ran out of money.

Orson Welles is one director that started at the top with Citizen Kane and worked his way down so I'm not getting my hopes up too high. Though it would be nice if it turns out ok.

Fun fact: My grandparents lived next door to the Welles' in California.

Neat. Any interesting stories about him that your grandparents told you?

He was so talented but his ego got in the way of his talent sometimes.

I'll bet anybody a buck that this gets an Oscar or two next-ish year.

RE: Old Orson Welles unfinished film being completed.
Which unfinished film is it? I can't open the link right now. I know he filmed a lot in South America.

He was an interesting guy - lied his way into film, pretty much. His fellow RKO Theater players were loyal - all brilliant stage actors - he always found roles for them in his films.

Agness Morehead was the most incredible actor but in the '60s, she couldn't wait around for Orsen to make another film so, she took the part of Endora on Bewitched to pay her medical bills. She also did one of the special hour long Twilight Zones which turned out to be one of the most memorable ones - she spoke no lines.

Lol. This reminds me of a video of Orson Welles totally drunk during the making of a wine commercial.

I found it. And here it is, ladies and gentlemen, a plastered Orson Welles.
