|Notes:||Too Much Johnson was a three-part film directed by Orson Welles, intended as an integral part of Mercury Theatre's 1938 production of the stage play. No complete print of the 1938 film is known to survive. This home movie belonged to Myron Falk, an investor in the Mercury Theatre. It is possible (but has not been confirmed) that Myron Falk filmed the home movie.
As originally received by PFA, at the end of this Too Much Johnson home movie, additional unrelated home movie footage had been spliced. This print has been cut to separate the Too Much Johnson section from the other; each is on its own reel.
Footage from Too Much Johnson set runs approximately 79 feet.
|Description:||1 reel of 1 (3 min.) (109 ft.) : si., black and white ; 16 mm print|
