Recovering lost films and TV shows

Recommended Posts

 

It's amazing that they can find these films after so long. It makes you wonder what other hidden treasures are out there just waiting to be re-discovered.

And it looks like they were three shorts spliced together (I'm not sure if they were all Meleis), which is even better.

I always figure everything has been found so any surprises always make me happy.

Orson Welles' long-lost The Other Side of the Wind - reconstructed and slated to be released by Netflix - has been pulled from the Cannes Film Festival along with several major new films due to Cannes' ongoing nasty feud with Netflix.  Beatrice Welles, Welles' oft-litigious daughter who fought the Wind restoration team for years, sent a letter to Netflix pleading for them to reconsider.

 

I support Netflix boycotting Cannes until it agrees to give their films award consideration - there are some excellent ones, including Dee Rees' Mudbound (an Oscar contender this past year) and Bong Joon-ho's Okja. But with The Other Side of the Wind I'd make an exception. It was Orson Welles' final work and I believe it deserves to be first screened at Cannes. I certainly will be making an effort to see it theatrically assuming it screens locally.
