orson's thoughts
23 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

From "This Is Orson Welles" by Bogdanovich

On the film:

"I've never seen any of what we shot, not a foot. Nobody ever saw the rushes."

On filming in South America:

"I didn't even like it particularly. I liked samba, but I didn't want to go down and live in South America--it's my least favorite part of the world."

On filming:

"I had this enormous crew sent down--I didn't want them, but they gave me two camera crews. So I'd sent a crew out there and said, 'Shoot 'em marching up and down.' I had to keep them busy; they were always saying, 'We want to get home--we're trapped here.'...So there must have been an awful lot of junk shot, because I wasn't even there."
