Only 75 years late, the presumed-lost, recently rediscovered footage from Orson Welles\’s 1938 stage-and-film production \”\” had its New York premiere last Monday night. And in at least one sense, the \”too much\” was apt: Welles never completed the movie portion of the piece, so what we have, at 66 minutes, runs significantly longer than what he intended to be seen….A woman has two lovers. When one man finds out about the other, he acts as a villain and chases after the protagonist.
