[Jess Franco's much maligned 1992 edit of the Welles project finally has an US DVD release in sight and can now be pre-ordered. Hopefully this release will actually happen this coming August 19th, barring any legal rights complications. I'll be especially interested in the video/sound quality, which on Spanish R2 DVD is very poor. The Spanish DVD is titled DON QUIJOTE DE ORSON WELLES, which is the onscreen title. Robert Monell]
