The rediscovered footage for the Mercury Theatre’s production of TOO MUCH JOHNSON makes for fascinating but challenging viewing. Never finished and long presumed lost, the film survives as 10 reels of an abandoned, partially edited 35mm nitrate work print created in the summer of 1938 by the 23-year-old Orson Welles. The footage was more fully edited by Welles in its opening reel—the first seven minutes here—but most is a rough assemblage, and all of it lacks the inter-titles he planned to write. The 66-minute print went unseen publicly until its rediscovery in a warehouse in Pordenone, Italy, and its preservation in 2013 through an international collaboration among the National Film Preservation Foundation, George Eastman House, the Cineteca del Friuli, and Cinemazero.

William Tyler Bio:
William Tyler is a Nashville guitarist and composer. He spent years woodshedding and touring with Nashville groups like Lambchop and Silver Jews before breaking away to focus on his own version of instrumental guitar music. His 2010 release “Behold the Spirit” was celebrated by Pitchfork as “the most vital, energized album by an American solo guitarist in a decade or more” and his latest releases—”Impossible Truth” (2013) and “Lost Colony” (2014, with full band)—have firmly established him as a critical favorite.

Originally commissioned by the Belcourt Theater in Nashville, TN.
