THE GREAT MOVIES: A TRIBUTE TO ROGER EBERT
CITIZEN KANE

Its surface is as much fun as any movie ever made. Its depths surpass understanding.” – Roger Ebert

CITIZEN KANE
1941, Warner Bros., 119 min, USA, Dir: Orson Welles

Orson Welles was only 25 when he directed this masterpiece, and it remains one of the most phenomenal motion pictures ever made. Welles also stars as Charles Foster Kane, a ruthless man who built a newspaper publishing empire and a character supposedly modeled after the real-life William Randolph Hearst. Trailblazing in so many respects, from Gregg Toland’s complex camera and lighting to Bernard Herrmann’s score to one of the finest ensemble casts (including Joseph Cotten, Everett Sloane and Agnes Moorehead) ever assembled. With an Academy Award-winning script by Welles and Herman J. Mankiewicz.
