About The Other Side of the Wind

In 1970, legendary director Orson Welles (CITIZEN KANE) began filming what would ultimately be his final cinematic opus with a cast of Hollywood luminaries including John Huston, Peter Bogdanovich, Susan Strasberg and Welles’s partner during his later years, Oja Kodar. Beset by financial issues, the production ultimately stretched years and gained notoriety, never to be completed or released. More than a thousand reels of film negatives languished in a Paris vault until March of 2017, when producers Frank Marshall (who served as Welles’s production manager during his initial shooting) and Filip Jan Rymsza spearheaded efforts to have the film completed after over 40 years.

Featuring a new score by Oscar-winning composer Michel Legrand and reassembled by a technical team including Oscar-winning editor Bob Murawski, THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WIND is Orson Welles’s vision fulfilled. It tells the story of grizzled director J.J. “Jake” Hannaford (Huston), who returns to Los Angeles after years in self-exile in Europe with plans to complete work on his own innovative comeback movie. Both a satire of the classic studio system and the New Hollywood that was shaking things up, Welles’s last artistic testament is a fascinating time capsule of a now-distant era in movie making as well as the long-awaited “new” work from an indisputable master.

About the Guests


FRANK MARSHALL (Producer)

Frank Marshall is one of the premier film producers in the entertainment industry. His body of work has come to define a generation for moviegoers, producing such timeless hits as BACK TO THE FUTURE, WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT? and the Indiana Jones franchise. In addition to a prolific producing career, Marshall has garnered wide acclaim as a film director, having brought to the screen such memorable movies as ARACHNOPHOBIA and ALIVE. Marshall was a producer of the 2015 blockbuster JURASSIC WORLD, which has grossed more than $1.5 billion worldwide, making it the third biggest box-office hit of all time after AVATAR and TITANIC.

Born in Los Angeles, Marshall is the son of American composer and conductor Jack Marshall. Growing up, Marshall was an avid musician and sports enthusiast. Before graduating from UCLA in 1968, Marshall ran track and cross-country for the school. In addition, he spearheaded the university’s inaugural soccer team, becoming a three-year varsity letterman in the process. Marshall began his motion picture career as an assistant to director Peter Bogdanovich. The filmmaker quickly promoted Marshall to serve as his location manager on the timeless movie THE LAST PICTURE SHOW. Marshall then took on the responsibilities of associate producer for Bogdanovich as the pair continued their alliance creating such notable films as PAPER MOON and NICKELODEON.

Following his time with Bogdanovich, Marshall worked as a line producer on Martin Scorsese’s THE LAST WALTZ. In keeping with his love of music, Marshall helped Scorsese document the final touring concert of The Band, immortalizing the group’s performance for future generations. In 1978, Marshall was hired by filmmakers George Lucas and Steven Spielberg to produce the iconic RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK. Released in 1981, the film was a huge international success and was nominated for nine Academy Awards. That same year, along with future wife and fellow producer Kathleen Kennedy, Marshall teamed with Spielberg to form Amblin Entertainment. Over the next decade, the trio established one of the most successful collaborations in motion picture history, bringing to the screen some of the most beloved movies of the modern era, including E.T. THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL, POLTERGEIST and THE GOONIES.

In 1991, Kennedy and Marshall ventured out on their own to form The Kennedy/Marshall Company, where the duo continued to produce critically acclaimed films such as THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON and the international hit franchise based on Robert Ludlum’s THE BOURNE IDENTITY. In addition to a production shingle, the company serves as a harbor for Marshall to explore personal artistic interests, such as directing the hit movies CONGO and EIGHT BELOW and the ESPN Films documentary RIGHT TO PLAY. Marshall’s most recent releases are JASON BOURNE, SULLY and FINDING OSCAR. His upcoming projects include the Jurassic World sequel and completing Orson Welles’s final film, THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WIND.

His accomplishments in the film industry have resulted in five Academy Awards nominations for producing titles as diverse as M. Night Shyamalan’s THE SIXTH SENSE to Gary Ross’s SEABISCUIT. In addition to his Oscar nominations, Marshall has been acknowledged for his work with UCLA’s Alumni Professional Achievement Award, the California Mentor Initiative’s Leadership Award, and the acclaimed American Academy of Achievement Award. Along with Kennedy, Marshall was the 2008 recipient of the Producers Guild of America’s David O. Selznick Award for Career Achievement. A year later, the duo was lauded with the Visual Effects Society’s Lifetime Achievement Award.

An industry veteran, Marshall has parlayed his success into a second career as a philanthropist. Marshall’s love of sports led him to serve as a member of the United States Olympic Committee for more than a decade. Marshall was bestowed with the Olympic Shield in 2005 in honor of his service to the committee and the Olympic movement; and, three years later, Marshall was inducted into the United States Olympic Hall of Fame. Marshall serves on the boards of several organizations, including Athletes for Hope, the U.S. Center of SafeSport, the USA Track & Field Association and The Archer School for Girls. In 2012, Marshall took over as the sole principal of The Kennedy/Marshall Company when Kennedy became chairman of Lucasfilm Ltd.
