Orson Welles mysterious unfinished masterpiece to be completed by Netflix

Published: Wednesday, March 15, 2017 @ 5:03 PM
Updated: Wednesday, March 15, 2017 @ 5:03 PM

            Netflix announced it is restoring, completing and releasing the last film ever made by legendary 'Citizen Kane' filmmaker Orson Welles. Welles started making 'The Other Side of the Wind
Netflix announced it is restoring, completing and releasing the last film ever made by legendary 'Citizen Kane' filmmaker Orson Welles. Welles started making 'The Other Side of the Wind" in 1970, but it was still unfinished when he died in 1985. (Associated Press)

One of the most famous unfinished films in cinema history is about to get an ending, a restoration and “wide release” by Netflix when it’s completed

The movie, “The Other Side of the Wind,” starring John Huston, Peter Bogdanovich, and Dennis Hopper among others, was the last film by legendary producer, director and actor Orson Welles, but he died of a heart attack in 1985 before he could finish it.

It was supposed to be Welles’ comeback movie when he returned to Hollywood after spending years in Europe, Vanity Fair reported.

Although the movie is about a director who returns to Hollywood after years away to make a comeback movie, Welles said the movie was not about himself.  

Netflix announced this week it had acquired the global rights to the film.

“Like so many others who grew up worshiping the craft and vision of Orson Welles, this is a dream come true,” Netflix Chief Content Officer, Ted Sarandos said in a statement about the company’s plans for the film.

“The promise of being able to bring to the world this unfinished work of Welles with his true artistic intention intact, is a point of pride for me and for Netflix,” Sarandos said. 

Netflix has acquired global rights to Orson Welles' unfinished final film.

Posted by Variety on Wednesday, March 15, 2017

The original production manager on “The Other Side of the Wind” in 1970 was Frank Marshall. Marshall has led the effort to finish the film for the past four decades and will now act as producer in overseeing its completion.

“I can’t quite believe it, but after 40 years of trying, I am so very grateful for the passion and perseverance from Netflix that has enabled us to, at long last, finally get into the cutting room to finish Orson’s last picture,” Marshall said.

No word, yet, on when the film will be completed.

Production on “The Other Side of the Wind” -- which would have been Welles’ 28th feature film -- began in 1970 and continued sporadically until 1976, after funding had run out.

The 2014 Vectren Dayton Air Show presented by Kroger offers excitement, history, and fascinating displays for all ages and interests. Among the featured performers at this year’s event on June 28 and 29 are: 

U.S. Navy Blue AngelsThe U.S. Navy Blue Angels is one of the world’s most sought-after air show teams and is back in Dayton for the 2014 air show. 

U.S. Marine Corps C-130 “Fat Albert”One airplane in the Blue Angels fleet gets its own billing, and it isn’t one of the supersonic Hornet jets. It’s “Fat Albert,” a U.S. Marine Corps C-130 Hercules airlifter. Fat Albert is the team’s support plane, but it flies its own solo performance at air shows, demonstrating the surprising nimbleness of the four-turboprop transport. 

U.S. Marine Corps AV-8B Harrier — The U.S. Marine Corps AV-8B Harrier will show off its gravity-defying vertical flight at this year’s show. The ability of a combat jet to take off and land vertically was a major breakthrough in aircraft technology. The Harrier was the first VSTOL (vertical/short takeoff and landing) jet in the Marine inventory. 

F-86 Sabre — Air show visitors will enjoy watching this North American combat fighter zip through the skies showcasing it’s amazing maneuverability! The North American F-86 Sabre was America’s first swept-wing fighter jet and a match for the MiG-15, the Soviet adversary it encountered in the skies over Korea. The Sabre was designed in the 1940s as a subsonic fighter aircraft. It entered service with the Air Force in 1949 to become the primary U.S. air combat fighter in the Korean War. By the end of hostilities, F-86 pilots had shot down 792 MiGs at a loss of only 76 Sabres, a victory ratio of 10 to 1, according to the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force.

U.S. Air Force Wings of Blue — This precision parachuting demonstration by Air Force’s official skydiving team will include a local element: Cadet Cameron Potts, a 2011 Carroll High School graduate will be jumping with the team. Cameron said he was inspired to serve, in part, by his grandfathers and by his visits to the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force and the air show.

Team AeroShell — A crowd favorite for over 25 years, Team AeroShell is a loud and proud flying formation team that was formed to inspire the masses with thrilling aerobatic formation flying. Rumbling over the skies of Dayton with their four powerful Pratt & Whitney engines with 600 horsepower, this award-winning team based in Birmingham, Alabama, will remind us of yesteryear when the colorful AT-6G Texan aircraft complete with a big smoke system take to the air. National Aviation Hall of Fame enshrinees -— Two will thrill the audience with daring areobatic manuevers: Patti Wagstaff and Sean D. Tucker.

Wagstaff’s breathtaking performances give airshow spectators a front-row seat view of the precision and complexity of modern, unlimited hard-core aerobatics. Having trained with the Russian Aerobatic Team, Wagstaff has won the gold, silver and bronze medals in Olympic-level international aerobatic competition and is the first woman to win the title of US National Aerobatic champion and one of the few people to win it three times. 

 Tucker isn’t satisfied unless he is learning, refining a skill or conquering a fear. He has been flying air shows worldwide since the mid-1970s. In that time, he’s won numerous aerobatic competitions and flown more than 1,200 performances at more than 450 air shows before more than 100 million fans. Shockwave Jet Truck — The world famous Shockwave Jet Truck will create a spectacle of smoke, fire, noise and speed as it shoots fireballs, billows smoke and hurtles down the runway speeds of more than 300 miles per hour. The popular truck is returning to Dayton as part of its 30th anniversary tour. Shockwave is a Peterbilt tractor radically modified with three J34-48 jet engines that produce 36,000 horsepower. Shockwave holds the Guiness world record for the fastest jet truck at 376 miles per hour.
Join in the flying

Those who want to be a part of the excitement will have the opportunity to climb aboard and purchase a flight in a real Vietnam era UH-1H “Huey” helicopter or an actual AH-1F Cobra Attack Helicopter.And, of course, there will be a number of static displays for those who enjoy wandering and asking questions in between the feats of aerial daring.

The air show starts at noon both days and is at the Dayton International Airport, 3800 Wright Drive in Vandalia. For up-to-the-minute air show news, please visit:
