Oja Kodar

1. – Nicole Kidman,  Dead Calm, 1989. Oja was in the Orson Welles version – known variously  as The Deep, The Yacht, Dead Reckoning or Mistaken Identity – and  never finished in 1968 and  totally cancelled with the 1973 death of the main  star, Laurence Harvey. Clips were seen in Orson Welles: The One-Man Band  1995, by Vassili Silovic and the Croatian Kodar –  Orson’s mistress and muse  from 1966 to his 1985 death.

2. – Irene Jacob, The Big Brass Ring, 1998. Prompted by Henry Jaglom, Orson Welles wrote a hot political script – too hot for any Hollywood backers.  The project was finally rescued 15 years on.  Yes,  but that was 13 years after Orson’s death.
