It's uncanny just how much Charlton Heston looks and sounds like a real Mexican. He's a chameleon, I tell you!

There's an Indiegogo campaign going on to finance completing Welles' final film, The Other Side of the Wind https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/other-side-of-the-wind-orson-welles-last-film

Good Orson Welles movie but is slightly overrated. I can't get past how unrealistic Janet Leigh's character is when she seamlessly decides to go along with a random Mexican on the street that she has never met before, even after Heston warns her how this area is sketchy. Gets better as it goes on though.
