Trailer for Orson Welles Doc 'They'll Love Me When I'm Dead' on Netflix
"Orson was such a perfectionist." Netflix has unveiled the first trailer for the documentary They'll Love Me When I'm Dead, a film about the story of and making of Orson Welles' final film, The Other Side of the Wind, which was finished and is also being released this year. This documentary is also the second film this year made by the incredibly talented Morgan Neville, who also directed the wonderful Won't You Be My Neighbor? about Mr. Rogers. In the final 15 years of the life of legendary director Orson Welles he pins his Hollywood comeback hopes on a project, The Other Side of the Wind, in itself a film about an aging director trying to finish his last great movie. They'll Love Me When I'm Dead is about what happened, and why he never finished it, and the final days of Orson the filmmaker. This looks way better than the actual film itself.
Here's the first official trailer for Morgan Neville's doc They'll Love Me When I'm Dead, on YouTube:
