Trivia

Rich Little was cast by director Orson Welles as the character Otterlake in the film. Welles praised Little's acting, saying that impressionists seemed to make good actors. Little, however, had to drop out of the movie since Welles improvisational style of filming, as well as layoffs caused by budgetary constraints, meant that the shooting schedule was not only unpredictable but practically interminable. When Little was unavailable for filming due to his honoring prior commitments, Welles replaced him with director Peter Bogdanovich, in whose house Welles was then living. The film was never completed during Welles' lifetime. See more »

Will We Ever?
15 May 2015 | by (Cape Coral, Florida, USA) – See all my reviews

There's a book just out---"Orson Welles's Last Movie: The Making of 'The Other Side of the Wind,'" by Josh Kapp. This tells the saga of the movie, and Welles, likely as well as anyone can. It's thorough and detailed and interesting, through the shoot and the tangled affairs that have so far prevented its release.

But it doesn't mean we'll ever see the movie Welles intended. Even if we get a release of some of it, how could anybody cutting and editing it now be absolutely sure that Welles would have done it that way? Probably it'd look something like Welles intended...but we could never be sure.

All I've ever seen of it were the clips that were shown in the broadcast AFI tribute to Welles---the clips Welles allowed to be shown. They looked interesting then; as I recall them they still look interesting. If a release version comes along, some version, will it be worth a look? Sure. Will it represent the movie if Welles had finished it? Maybe...maybe not. But it'd be worth a look.
