Citizen Kane (1941) (PG)

Director Orson Welles. Drama/Mystery


Orson Welles makes his feature-length directorial debut with this classic drama which often tops critics' polls of the best films of all time. In 1940, newspaper tycoon Charles Foster Kane dies after uttering the word 'Rosebud'. An anonymous reporter is assigned the task of uncovering the meaning of Kane's dying word, and in the course of his enquiries he receives varying accounts of his life from former colleagues Jedediah Leland and Bernstein, and ex-wife Susan Alexander. The film, which Welles also produced and co-wrote, was not-so-loosely based on the life of newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst.

Starring Orson Welles, Joseph Cotton, Dorothy Comingore, Agnes Moorehead and Ruth Warrick
