ABOUT US

Many of these films have never been available on home video before. Some have never been released in the United States in any way at all. All are presented here in exclusive DVD editions, lovingly mastered from the highest quality sources available, with unique supplemental bonus features.

 

For the unloved and the obscure, the lost and forgotten, All Day Entertainment is dedicated to the very best movies you’ve never heard of. Every one of these discs is a treasure, and I personally recommend them all.

ORSON WELLES' DON QUIXOTE

Spanish / Classic / arthouse

For decades, Orson Welles toiled on the side on a peculiar passion project all his own--a metatextual adaptation of Cervantes' fabled novel.  Although never finished (and arguably never finishable), the footage was posthumously assembled by cult movie auteur Jess Franco--resulting in a bizarre mashup the likes of which you can scarcely imagine.

This is a not an All Day DVD.  I spent years of my own equally fruitlessly trying to release this in the US, but never succeeded.  This is a tombstone to the DVD that never was.
