Don Quixote is an unfinished film project produced, written and directed by Orson Welles. Principal photography took place between 1957 and 1969. Test footage was filmed as early as 1955, second-unit photography was done as late as 1972, and Welles was working on the film intermittently until his death in 1985.

Did You Know?
The endless delay in completing the project spurred Orson Welles
to consider calling the project "When Are You Going to Finish Don Quixote?", referring to the question he was tired of hearing. It is unclear whether or not Welles was joking about this. Up until his death in 1985, Welles was still publicly talking about bringing the unfinished work to completion. See more
