CITIZEN KANE (Theatrical Release USA 1941)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.7|5.0 Starsìììì

Citizen Kane
—classic watch—tells an outstanding story with style and terrific acting. It seems partially based on the life story of William Randolph Hearst and serves as a great study on the works of actor and director, Orson Welles.
