RKO 281 was a movie made recently that dramatises the lengths Welles and his collaborators went to get the film made and then screened in the face of insurmountable obstacles - namely William Randolph Hearst's power and his influence.
The title comes from the fact that it was made by RKO - all film projects were named simply for their production company at first, then titles decided on later.
It is not the greatest movie I have seen, but good for those who are interested in the story behind the story, so to speak. It stars Liev Schreiber, who bears an uncanny resemblence to the young Welles.
