Croatia real estate


Orson Welles partner unsure about Showtime completing his movie

Croatian Times

Orson Welles's partner Oja Kodar is still not sure that one of Welle's unseen masterpieces will really be released, as British daily newspaper the Guardian claimed earlier this week.

The Other Side of the Wind, shot in 1972, could now see the light of day, according to a British daily, but Oja Kodar, living in Primosten, Croatia, has said she is still not that sure that this is an option.

The film was kept away for 39 years and it could stay hidden if TV company Showtime do not meet Oja Kodar's demands.

"It is true that Jacqueline Boushehri, the wife of the Iranian producer, and I are interested in the film being finally completed. But from the Showtime we still did not receive the details of a budget. Without it I won't give the rights to anyone", Oja Kodar has told to Croatian daily Vecernji List.

She said she fears that the problem Orson Welles' movie Don Quijote encountered in 1994 - not enought post-production investment - will be repeated.

"I want people from Showtime to be aware of what it measn to complete an Orson Welles' movie", she has added.

As for Don Quijote she said she was completely dissatisfied with how it got completed, and she wants to avoid another possible disappointment.
