The Memos Part IX: Dr. Bernstein to Orson Welles – ‘RKO will not renew your contract under any circumstances’Monday, May 21st, 2012
By LAWRENCE FRENCH
Details on the previews of the re-edited version of THE MAGNIFICENT AMBERSONS that were held in May are incomplete, but it appears Welles was no longer being advised on all the changes that the studio was making, even by his own manager, Jack Moss, who was working with Robert Wise in making the studio imposed changes.
May 4, 1942: A 93-minute re-cut version of AMBERSONS is previewed in Inglewood. The boarding house ending is still included in the film.
