(Even the discs for the wonderful AMBERSONS show, which The Old Man himself ground down working on the film, are much improved.)

Slightly related, I saw the "Swinging London" sequences and I've always wondered who the writers were, and if a script might not exist for the mute one. Are there any theories on that? Or any institutes where that paperwork might have ended up?

Welcome, Robert.

For once, something touted as a Great Leap Forward really IS one. Much of this material sounds better than it has in years; some of it, better than anyone other than the cast & crew themselves has ever heard it.

And Welles was a genuine Master of this medium, as well as an oft-professed lover of it.

Best,
-Craig

Orson Welles & Nikola Tesla - The Creative Process

"This rare film stars Orson Welles and features a dramatic recreation of a meeting between Nikola Tesla, Industrialist J.P. Morgan and Thomas Edison, that would decide the fate and future of today's Electric Power Industry in America and the world."

Forgive my subject change.
May I ask if someone have the original War of The Worlds radio transmission narrated by Orson Welles ?
Keep thinking...
