#3 in Sight and Sound's list of the greatest films of all time

Already a sensation on stage with his Mercury Theatre and on the radio with THE SHADOW and his infamous THE WAR OF THE WORLDS broadcast, Orson Welles' 1941 screen debut confirmed his genius and, ironically, sealed his fate — none of his other dozen or so feature films, as wonderful as they are, would equal KANE's glory. The story of newspaper mogul Charles Foster Kane's (Welles) rise and fall is a marvel on every level, #1 on AFI's 100 Years...100 Movies list and the perennial holder of the top spot on most lists of the greatest films of all time. "More fun than any great movie I can think of." – Pauline Kael. The wonderful cast, many of whom were Mercury Theatre regulars "new to motion pictures," as noted in the ending credits, includes Joseph Cotten, Dorothy Comingore, Agnes Moorehead, Everett Sloane, Ruth Warrick, George Coulouris and Ray Collins. DIR/SCR/PROD Orson Welles; SCR Herman J. Mankiewicz. U.S., 1941, b&w, 119 min. RATED PG
