The complete Mr. Arkadin : a.k.a. Confidential report

American smuggler Guy van Strattan decides to investigate the mysterious Mr. Arkadin after hearing about the wealthy man from a prison cellmate, but Arkadin claims amnesia about his own life, sending van Strattan off to investigate Arkadin's past. Three different versions are presented in this collection since Orson Welles never completed a final cut of Mr. Arkadin, several edits of the film exist, in different languages, with different sequences, actors, narrative structures, and even titles. The Corinth version was unearthed by filmaker Peter Bogdanovich in the early 1960s, based on statements made by Welles and editor Renzo Lucidi, the Corinth version is thought to be the latest version to have been under Welles's control. The Confidential report version is believed to be the cut finished by producer Louis Dolivet after he barred Welles from the editing room. The Confidential version is a new version of the film representing a "best guess" approach following Welles's later statements, style, and continuity clues and includes as much existing footage as possible.
