One comment on “Episode 46 – Unfortunate Final Movies

  1. Both director Nelson Shin and story consultant Flint Dille have confirmed that, due to his failing health, Orson Welles had much difficulty recording all his dialogue for the film and all his recorded lines also included labored breathing and heavy wheezing. Shin considered all of Welles’ recorded lines to be unusable but decided to put the recordings through a voice synthesizer to give Welles’ voice a clearer, more ominous tone. According to Shin, Unicron’s on-screen voice is not the “true” Orson Welles but instead, an enhanced, synthesized version of his voice.

    Orson Welles died in 1985, sparking rumors that Leonard Nimoy took over and provided the voice for Unicron. However, Susan Blu (Arcee) has since confirmed that Welles completed the voice-over work before he died.

    Both of these are from IMDB, so take it for what it is.
