Who better to edit and restore one of Orson Welles' most celebrated "lost" films than the director of Succubus, Vampyros Lesbos and A Virgin Among The Living Dead? In all fairness to Jesus Franco, the Spanish filmmaker best known for his erotic horror movies, he was one of Welles' assistant directors during the long and sporadic filming of Don Quixote, so there was a compelling reason for having him edit the footage Welles left behind into some presentable shape, but Orson Welles' Don Quixote is a mess that for the most part bears no stylistic resemblance to Welles' work. Orson Welles' Don Quixote (which curiously includes no directorial credit for the auteur mentioned in the title) has been transferred to disc in the full-frame aspect ratio of 1.33:1, as it was originally shot, and the image quality is wildly inconsistent but usually falls somewhere between fair and poor. The source prints for most of the footage are scratchy and overexposed, and though some of the material features the bold, expressive framings that were one of Welles' trademarks, there are plenty of sequences that look little better than home movies, while others seem to have been borrowed from footage shot for the TV documentaries Around The World With Orson Welles and In The Land Of Don Quixote. Adding insult to injury, the editing is choppy and the splices are often visible. The audio has been mastered in Dolby Digital Stereo, and the dialogue is in English (though the opening and closing credits are in Spanish), with no subtitles or multiple language options included. The soundtrack is just as mixed-up as the images, with many characters clearly dubbed by two or three different actors (there are some scenes where both Francisco Reiguera as Don Quixote and Akim Tamiroff as Sancho Panza are clearly voiced by Welles) with no visible effort to match the lip movements, and though the fidelity is less shoddy than the quality of the images, it's rarely more than competent. No bonus features have been included, and if there was ever a DVD that screamed for some behind-the-scenes explanation at how the movie was put together, this is it. (And while actress Patty McCormack is listed on the cover as part of the cast, she does not appear in this edit of the film). Only the most devoted Orson Welles scholars should bother themselves with this disc; Orson Welles' Don Quixote may allow fans to finally see some scraps of this fabled project, but they've been assembled in a way that robs them of any coherence.
