The Other Side of the Wind
DIRECTOR: ORSON WELLES
CAST: JOHN HUSTON, OJA KODAR, PETER BOGDANOVICH, SUSAN STRASBERG, NORMAN FOSTER, MERCEDES MCCAMBRIDGE
Almost 50 years after Orson Welles began production on what would be his final film, Other Wind (as it came to be known by certain members of the cast and crew) has finally been completed by Welles’s collaborators. The film features a collection of actors as eclectic as the cast of Touch of Evil, including John Huston as an old-guard macho Hollywood director at the end of his tether, Peter Bogdanovich, Oja Kodar, Mercedes McCambridge, Cameron Mitchell, Paul Mazursky, Henry Jaglom, Claude Chabrol, and, in a movie-stealing performance as Hannaford’s right-hand man, Welles’s old collaborator Norman Foster.
