An ironic twist is that, when you, Larry French, and I interviewed Peter Bogdanovich at the Castro Theater in San Francisco, he was supremely confident about at least two things: 1) The legal difficulties around THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WIND would be cleared away, "in a year or so,"
Several years later, THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WIND molders in a couple of vaults
the scene of the truck driving across the bridge in his "Sorcerer" (a remake of Cluzot's "Wages of Fear") stands as one the most tense and intense action scenes I've ever witnessed on film.
It's nice that Friedkin speaks so well of CITIZEN KANE, but on the other hand I find it rather strange he and Francis Coppola reportedly wouldn't support Peter Bogdanovich in the seventies, when Bogdanovich wanted to get Paramount and the Director's Company to back an Orson Welles film.
