LAST SEEN: A rare one-time screening is slated for April at New York’s Film Forum as part of an Orson Welles retrospective.
AMERICAN HOME VIDEO: None.
REASON FOR DISAPPEARANCE: Uncertain, although several of Welles’ films have been stuck in legal limbo for endless years.
CHANCES OF SEEING A HOME VIDEO/DVD RELEASE: Possible, especially with an Italian DVD release last year.
BOOTLEG OPPORTUNITIES: Plentiful, but the quality of most of these bootlegs leaves something to be desired.
