I did read somewhere that in the early 70's Welles was thinking of getting together both Joseph Cotton and Agnes Moorehead and film a new ending for Ambersons but Agnes died before he had a chance to try it.
With no RKO to stop him, or cut his project to ribbons, and a more liberal, enlightened society to view his work with a less jaundiced(?) eye, Welles could have got the last laugh on those RKO execs.
Welles would have had to pay a premium for the use of the film, had the Studio wanted to join the project, which was not likely, and he would have had to gather up and pay his old Mercury Players.
