Too Much Johnson

Dirigido por Orson Welles
Estados Unidos, 1938
Comédia, Curta


The film was not intended to stand by itself, but was designed as the cinematic aspect of Welles’s Mercury Theatre stage presentation of William Gillette’s 1894 comedy about a New York playboy who flees from the violent husband of his mistress and borrows the identity of a plantation owner in Cuba.

Too Much Johnson Dirigido por Orson Welles
Filmed in and around the city, it salutes the bygone silent era with an exuberant spontaneity and array of dynamic images… Alleyways, chimneys, dormers, crates and produce baskets become sets and props in the most exciting sequences of this splendid romp through now-vanished locations.

While Too Much Johnson’s cinematic component was far from an amateur hour outing… it couldn’t afford too much polish, and every now and then in the background of a shot you see cars scooting over a road, or some early version of what Welles calls a “mirror box” pokes its way into a background corner. Far from break the spell, it enhances a spell of a different kind, the spell of artistry trying to will the past to manifest itself before you.

[In one scene, Welles] cuts his way into making one of the most erotic scenes of the 1930s, even though his actors keep their clothes on. Purely through the use of shock edits, he conjures the ecstatic sensation of wild lovemaking. It would take twenty years before The French New Wave and New Hollywood would film scenes like this.
