sorry, FILMING THE TRIAL is a mistake. you are right to correct me. i meant FILMING OTHELLO. where was my head at. i never even heard of FILMING THE TRIAL till about a year ago here, and yes, that is what i read, some question and answer things is how far it got. i don't know for sure but i think it's one of those little segments of footage in ONE MAN BAND, where a student asks if his poverty helped his creativity.
>MOBY DICK REHEARSED was shot in 1955 when welles had. stopped the stage stage performances. it is reported that he filmed all the parts except his own part in london.
frank brady quoted one of the participants that said only 9 minutes (one reel) was shot, not a big production, just a non-moving camera on a tripod, then abandoned because welles was not happy with the results, i never really thought of it as a film.
>MOBY DICK has also not been finished
i didn't say it was. as far as i knew it was some narration that never went any where. i also said it's a shame. would have been nice if he's had some funds to put together something off the wall, but entertaining.
>MOBY DICK put together in a 22 minutes short film which is presentable. it shows orson in different light reciting the lines of his stage play. he is doing all the parts and it's really great to see him in shot and counter shot talking with himself. it's an incredible piece of very reduced but very effective filmmaking - a real one-man show.
i was right. it's just some talking head type narration. no argument here.
>FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH and PORTRAIT OF GINA do exist (both were shown at the welles conference in germany).
yes, i said that. i have FOUNTAIN, would love to see the GINA thing.
>THE GOLDEN HONEYMOON was shown for the very first time in the welles conference. it's a fragment, the end is missing. as far as i understood they want to complete it by using the end of the radio play by welles.
i said i never heard of this one.
>the only existing material of welles' KING LEAR are the screenplay and a video tape in which he explains his vision to the producer.
like i said, it never got passed a screenplay, you listed it as a lost film.
>IN THE LAND OF DON QUIXOTE was an italian(!) tv series which was filmed and edited by welles but left without a soundtrack.
i read this was this was a 30-minute tv thing done for spain. you listed it as a lost film.
>THE ORSON WELLES SHOW has been finished by welles.
yes, i said that. it's not very good.
>THE DREAMERS. there are some test shootings of oja kodar, a garden and a fountain .............could see a 25 minute film which includes all material which was filmed and edited by welles.
i said that. all there is are some closeups, and a sceeenplay. if you look at my first post i included this in my list of 5 well known unfinished films, because it was intended to be a feature lenght film, and some filming was actually done, so i considered it an unfinished film..
