Welles Before He Raised 'Kane'

Amazing NYT story just posted by Dave Kehr on chance discovery--in Spain--of Orson Welles' long-lost first professional film, with the title (not supposed to be dirty, I imagine), Too Much Johnson.   It's now being restored, will screen abroad in October and then perhaps show up on the Web.   Stars longtime Welles colleague Joseph Cotten, plus Orson in old-age makeup where he looks like Charles Foster Kane.
