At the beginning of 1983...Money for King Lear seemed more then remotely possible. Alexander Salkind, who had produced Orson's THE TRIAL and had gone on to make tens of millions of dollars launching SUPERMAN I and II, wanted Orson to act in his extravaganza WHERE IS PARSIFAL? Orson, not so reluctantly, took the acting job in Europe in the hope that he might interest Salkind in backing his KING LEAR. Salkind did show initial interest, only to have his enthusiasm diminish when he experienced a rude financial dampener with SUPERMAN III.
