Regardless, I would like to see TOSTW completed in some form. Hopper in his day would have been great. So would Coppola. But both have moved on to doing work that has been below what they did at the height of their respective powers.

And she is the co-author and a star of the film as well. I hope she gets it.

chipm wrote:While I admire and enjoy his later work, seeing the immense amount of unfinished material in One Man Band leads me to believe that as the years wore on Welles became more process driven and less project driven. I don't subscribe to Welles having a fear of completion. Men are more complicated than that. I believe Orson fought his own demons. In the end, we are lucky to have what we do...as they are victories over his own worst nature.
