Hey there! Welcome to the blog page of the relaunched orsonwelles.co.uk. Here you'll find up to date Welles news and links to Wellesian happenings as they arise.
The restored version of Orson Welles's 1938 comedy, TOO MUCH JOHNSON, can now be watched free online at the Eastman Museum with a delightful voice-over commentary and a new score inspired by the music for the original Mercury Theatre production.
Sun 13th Jan 9pm @BBCFOUR - UK TV premiere of my new film #TheEyesofOrsonWelles. 10 mins shorter than the cinema version, but still a new look at that movie colossus. Big thanks to @screenscots @AdamDawtrey @tcm @cassianh @bbcarts @Timotheus_ and all involved. pic.twitter.com/JBrJJ884Mi— mark cousins (@markcousinsfilm) 9 January 2019
