The documentary will be available on Blu-ray this month.
As previously reported, Cohen Media Group will be releasing 'Magician: The Astonishing Life and Work of Orson Welles' on Blu-ray on May 26.
Magician: The Astonishing Life and Work of Orson Welles looks at the remarkable genius of Orson Welles on the eve of his centenary - the enigma of his career as a Hollywood star, a Hollywood director (for some a Hollywood failure), and a crucially important independent filmmaker.
Orson Welles's life was magical: a musical prodigy at age 10, a director of Shakespeare at 14, a painter at 16, a star of stage and radio at 20, romances with some of the most beautiful women in the world, including Rita Hayworth. His work was similarly extraordinary, most notably Citizen Kane, (considered by many to be the most important movie ever made), created by Welles when he was only 25.
The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a lossless 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements include: EPK Featurette Interview with Annette Insdorf and a trailer.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $34.98.
