“Citizen Kane” is a 1941 American drama, directed by and starring Orson
Welles. Many critics consider it the greatest film of all time, especially
for its innovative cinematography, music and narrative structure.
“Citizen Kane” was Welles’ first feature film. The film was nominated for Academy Awards in nine categories; it won an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay by Herman Mankiewicz and Welles.
The story examines the life and legacy of Charles Foster Kane, played by Welles, character based in part upon the American newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst and Welles’ own life.
Upon its release, Hearst prohibited mention of the film in any of his newspapers. Kane’s career in the publishing world is born of idealistic social service, but gradually evolves into a ruthless pursuit of power.
