Where is ONE MAN BAND available?
Eh, There's the rub, because it's not available, thanks to Orson Welles greedy daughter. Because of Beatrice there is
so much of the great man's legacy that unfortunately, will remain largely unseen.
Showtime mailed out review copies to press outlets, which is how I got mine. But of course, thanks to Beatrice, nobody else will get to see it.
Ironically, in his will, Welles left all his unfinished works with Oja Kodar, and stipulated that if anyone was to contest that, they were to get NOTHING. Of his films, he left only OTHELLO to his wife, Palo Mori. To Beatrice he left only a small bequest of $10,000. (Welles knew the plot of KING LEAR, and wasn't about to give Beatrice the rights to anything!).
Unfornunately, not long after Welles died, Palo Mori died in a car crash in Las Vegas, ironically the day before she was going to sign a settlement agreement with Oja Kodar.
After Palo Mori died, the rights to her half of the Welles estate reverted to her daughter, Beatrice, who has contested everything that Oja legally was granted clear title to by Welles in his will.
So even though,under the terms of Welles will Beatrice should have been dis-inheirited, she obviously got herself a good lawyer, and somehow has become the guardian of the Welles Estate.
