LimeGreenLegend 3,909 Posted April 1, 2022 Share Posted April 1, 2022 The second half of our Oscar special, a winning Best Screenplay film, is the legendary Citizen Kane, arguably the greatest film ever made, easily the most influential. When elderly, reclusive billionaire media mogul Charles Foster Kane (Orson Welles) dies in his palatial estate, dogged reporter Jerry Thompson (William Alland) sets out to discover the meaning behind his enigmatic last word, "Rosebud". He interviews people who knew him and we get to see Kane's entire life from childhood through to his lonely death. This is Orson Welle's debut film, and as well as starring in the lead role he also directed, produced and co-wrote the screenplay with Herman J. Mankiewicz. Not bad for a 26 year old. You know this film is good when even its name is used as a synonym for the best, as in "this is the Citizen Kane of online gaming crews". Nominated for nine Oscars, including three others for Welles (Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actor), the Original Screenplay award was its only win. people will think what I tell them to think 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
