In THE messy and singular oeuvre of Orson Welles -- a filmography full of unseen works and unfinished business -- there was no lost object more mythic than his "Don Quixote." Welles started shooting his adaptation of Miguel de Cervantes' 17th century classic in 1955 as a television drama, worked on it sporadically over the years and was still talking about completing it at the time of his death in 1985. Various bits of footage, put together in different configurations, have been screened over the years -- none more notorious than the nearly two-hour reconstruction, "Don Quixote by Orson Welles."

Orson Welles began shooting his film version of "Don Quixote" in 1955, and was reportedly so obsessed with the project that he was still talking about finishing it four months before he died in 1985. The film was completed--although Welles never lived to see it--but with almost as much struggle and controversy as the director received during his filmmaking career.
