Nearly half a century after production commenced on renowned director Orson Welles’ unfinished movie, producer and actor Peter Bogdanovich resumed post-production to fulfill Welles’ wish for completion. Still working on the movie when he passed away in 1985, Welles’ experimental piece chronicles the struggles of an aging Hollywood director, Jake Hannaford, who emerges from semi-exile with the desire to create a noteworthy comeback film. Sorting through 100 hours of footage left behind, Bogdanovich spearheaded the effort to finish the long-awaited satire of Hollywood’s golden age that both mirrors Welles’ life and carries on his legacy. Discussion with executive producer Peter Bogdanovich (via live video conference), moderated by Ben Mankiewicz (Turner Classic Movies)
