Thank you, Harvey, for that decent review.
Unfortunately, on my screen, about a quarter of it was lost because "About Me," "Archives," etc., obscured the left hand margin.
We have discussed this matter before. No doubt, the film was quickly done, written by Welles and Joseph Cotton, but directed mostly by Norman Foster, Loretta Young's brother-in-law -- after Welles left for Brazil, following his completion of THE MAGNIFICENT AMBERSONS, and finishing his scenes as Colonel Haki (one of his most off hand, careless performances). Welles always said that, to him, the most interesting scenes were those which showed the personal and political tensions set up by the relationships of the passengers on the ship. And almost all of that was cut out.
I guess you would have to say, what was Welles in the picture was Welles, and what was not Welles . . . was not.
Thank you for the contribution.
