Hi - A message for everyone looking for these three shows: The AFI presentation, "One Man Band," and the BBC OW interview. I got good copies from Chris. Not great, but they're fine. ("One Man Band" appears under the title "The Lost Films of OW.") The AFI presentation was kind of interesting, a time capsule of the mid-70's in a way. Best part was Welles' speech and the clip he shows from TOSOTW, which is also in "Lost Films."
"Lost Films" was intriguing. Amazing how much unfinished work he left behind. And hearing Oja Kodan's stories about him was a treat. This tape shows two clips from TOSOTW, one of which OW showed at the AFI tribute, perhaps to drum up some support to finish it. And lots of other wonderful footage on this tape.
But the real topper was the two-part, 3 hour interview. Welles was as articulate and forthcoming as ever. This took place in '82 and I think he wanted to get it all down for the record before it was too late. I now feel I understand him so much better. There are also interviews with his cast/co-stars that I found very revealing as well.
I told Chris I'd be happy to vouch for him. He gave me the three shows on four tapes (SP record mode) for $25, including shipping.
