That always sounded like such an interesting project when reading about Welles. I wonder if they plan to complete the editing though, it sounds like Welles never really finished it.

I wonder if the title would have made it past the censors back in the late 1930's?

Great news, but it's too bad that it's not that other lost Orson Welles film.

Check your Funk and Wagnalls.

 

Mining the same vein, I went to Home Depot the other day and asked where the wood hardener was. The sales associate told me to try Walgreens, and that I'd need a doctor's prescription.

That would indeed have been Magnificent!

 

I've read many books and watched many interviews about the Great Mr. Welles, and this is the first I've ever heard about this lost film. Can't wait to see it. Hopefully, Criterion will be able to do something with it.

 Wow! What a find!

 

That is amazing. I don't suppose there was any trace of the cut footage from The Magnificent Ambersons in that warehouse. :) Now, if only someone would stumble onto a print of Hitchcock's second directorial effort, 1927's The Mountain Eagle...

JCK and I with an interesting artifact, which hung in our office.

 

Don't believe it has been seen publicly.  For fans of the film only.

Re: Carlotta,

 

Is this an alternate version painted by the same artist? The hair and facial expression appear to be different from what was seen in the film.

I would guess that's the Vera Miles version of the painting...

Ahh.. What might have been.

 

I wonder who owns the portrait of Midge?

Since this thread hasn't really been about Lawrence of Arabia in a long time, I nominate that the thread title be changed to "A Few Words While We Wait." Who's with me? :)

I used to open this thread thinking it's related to Lawrence of Arabia and still occasionally do out of habit.  I nominate "A Few Words While We Wait for the Next Big Release."
