Cotten: Too Much What?!

The great film actor Joseph Cotten was born on this day in 1905. Everybody has to start somewhere, and Cotten made his screen debut in a 1938 film called, ahem, Too Much Johnson. No - he did not, as many have, find his way to Hollywood via porn: Too Much Johnson was an Orson Welles production, a short film (now missing believed lost) that was intended to complement Welles's stage production of a William Gillette comedy of the same title. I can't help feeling that if there's ever another adaptation, it will come out under a different name...
