    After finally watching and enjoying Citizen Kane, I watched MacBeth and recently enjoyed Welles in The Third Man. I've also watched a lot of interviews and tv appearances with Welles on YouTube.

    The ones you mention are on my list. Weren't Touch of Evil and Ambersons both critically acclaimed but Welles said they had been hacked up by the studio? Aren't there recuts for both films? I hear Chimes at Midnight may have been Welles' last great work.


Yes, the released versions of The Magnificent Ambersons and Touch of Evil were not edited by Welles and both include scenes that he did not shoot. With Ambersons, there is only one version. Welles' editing notes survive, but all the footage has long since been destroyed.

With Touch of Evil, there are three versions of the film: the 1958 release, the 1976 release and the 1998 release. The 1976 release was a preview version that did have more footage shot by Welles than the 1958 release. The 1998 release was an attempt to use all available footage to create a version that followed Welles' editing notes.

    F for Fake looked like an interesting experiment, kind of like Other Side of the Wind. What was bad about it? Just boring?
