Movie Info

They'll Love Me When I'm Dead tells the story of legendary director Orson Welles at the end of his career. He was no longer the "Wonder Boy" flush with success from Citizen Kane, but an aging artist in exile whose luck had run out. "The Other Side of the Wind" was the feature film meant to be his Hollywood comeback vehicle. For over six years he struggled to complete it, filming whenever he could make enough money from acting gigs and commercial appearances. In 1985 it all ended. The film remained unfinished upon his death, and stayed locked in a vault for almost four decades. Comprised of never-before-seen footage from Welles and original interviews with cast and crew, the documentary, like Orson's work, is a dense story of betrayal made up of many fragments of high and low culture.
