Citizen Kane (1941)
Citizen Kane (1941)
The sophisticated and classic masterpiece Citizen Kane has long been acclaimed as a work of genius, and is probably the world's most famous and highly-rated film.

When a reporter is assigned to decipher newspaper magnate Charles Foster Kane's (Orson Welles) dying words, his investigation gradually reveals the fascinating portrait of a complex man who rose from obscurity to staggering heights. Though Kane's friend and colleague Jedediah Leland (Joseph Cotten), and his mistress, Susan Alexander (Dorothy Comingore), shed fragments of light on Kane's life, the reporter fears he may never penetrate the mystery of the elusive man's final word, "Rosebud."

Its director, star, and producer were all the same genius individual - Orson Welles (in his film debut at age 25!). The epic tale is entertaining, poignant, and inventive in its storytelling, earning its reputation as a landmark achievement.

Citizen Kane was the recipient of nine Oscar nominations with only one win - Best Original Screenplay (Mankiewicz and Welles). The other eight nominations included Best Picture (Orson Welles, producer), Best Actor and Best Director (Welles), Best B/W Cinematography (Toland), Best Art Direction (Perry Ferguson and Van Nest Polglase), Best Sound Recording (John Aalberg), Best Dramatic Picture Score (Bernard Herrmann with his first brilliant musical score), and Best Film Editing (Robert Wise).

With his four Academy Awards nominations, Welles became the first individual to receive simultaneous nominations in those four categories.
