A few months ago, I attended a public screening hosted by The Academy of the long-lost Orson Welles experimental film/theater project TOO MUCH JOHNSON.
A few days ago, The Nation Film Preservation Fund put this reassembled footage online with extensive liner notes and context, available to stream and download for free.
In the interest of blogs who might want to embed/share the whole footage, I’ve uploaded the work print to YouTube.
Please visit the NFPF for more information.
