Welles' favorite of his films


I've often heard Orson welles claimed The Trial was the best film he ever made but I've also heard it said that he claimed Falstaff his favorite.

Does anyone know (maybe through interviews) which film he considers the greatest of his?

Is he distinguishing which he considers the best based on the techniques employed or just based om which he enjoys the most?

just curious, love everything the man has done, and would love to know more about his views on his finished films.

Also, anyone know if The Other Side of Wind will be made available soon? I'm dying to even see clips from it(The doc. One Man Band had some made available).

On the commentary for Citizen Kane, Peter Bogdanovich (and he should know, if anybody) states that Orson Welles' favorite film is Chimes at Midnight.
p.s. It is also Mr. Bogdanovich's favorite.

I much prefer Citizen Kane.
