"The Other Side of the Wind" Gone with the Wind?
Oh brother, here we go again. For as long as I can remember Peter Bogdanovich has been saying the completion and release of THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WIND is imminent. As I reported in my blog entry of 11/26/07 it really looked like 2008 was actually going to be the magic year. However, just today I saw a posting on the wellesnet.com message boards (in rumor form) that the Showtime deal is off. Please let this not be true. I do believe that if THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WIND isn't completed this year, the best we'll ever get is a DVD release of a loosely constructed narrative and a "what might have been documentary," which will hardly satisfy the decades-long wait.
