Eastman House discuses the recovery of Mercury Theatre's long-lost Too Much Johnson, directed by Orson Welles in 1938.

The believed to be destroyed silent film was found in a warehouse by the staff of Cinemazero art house in Italy.

Featuring Daniela Currò, Preservation Officer and Tony Delgrosso
Head of Preservation in the Motion Picture Department at George Eastman House.

"Holding in one's hands the very same print that had been personally edited by Orson Welles 75 years ago provokes an emotion that's just impossible to describe."
Paolo Cherchi Usai, Senior Curator of Film, George Eastman House
