(It doesn’t help that Welles himself made many contradictory claims about these movies, and his intentions for them, over the years.)

Hannaford is also screening footage from his newest movie, a mock-European “arty” drama starring an actor named John Dale (played by Bob Random) and a mysterious woman (played by Oja Kodar, who in real life was Welles’s girlfriend and is credited on as his co-writer).
