Trivia

Originally the film was to consist of three segments. "Jangadeiros" is the story of four tree raft fishermen who travel up the Brazilian coast 1650 miles to beg the country's leader to help their poor village. The second episode, "The Story of the Samba," was to be shot in Tchnicolor at the Rio carnival. The last portion, "My Friend Bonito" was to be directed by Norman Foster from a Robert Flaherty story about a boy and his bull. See more »

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."
