Over 40 years in the making, The Other Side of the Wind is finally seeing the light of day, as it will be released in theaters and Netflix on November 2. Directed by Orson Welles, the project centers on J.J. “Jake” Hannaford (John Huston), a filmmaker who returns to the U.S. after spending years in Europe with hopes to making his own comeback film. The project co-stars Welles’ longtime friend, filmmaker Peter Bogdanovich, Susan Strasberg, and Welles’ partner Oja Kodar (Welles, though married to Paola Mori, was also involved in a relationship with Kodar).
Due to financial and legal issues, The Other Side of the Wind’s chances of finally seeing the light of day appeared slim, but hope flourished when producers Frank Marshall and Filip Jan Rymsza scoured through over a thousand reels of film negatives to ultimately get the picture on the right track.
