Footage shot by Citizen Kane director Orson Welles in 1938 has been restored after being discovered in a warehouse in north-east Italy.
The footage, originally intended to be screened during a staging of the 19th Century comedy Too Much Johnson, will finally be premiered in October.
It had been thought the only known print was destroyed in a fire in 1970.
The 35mm nitrate work print was restored by film exhibitors Cinemazero, who worked in conjunction with George Eastman House and the National Film Preservation Foundation (NFPF) to preserve and restore it.
