Region code 1 (USA)
NEW and sealed 2 DVD Set
Orson Welles' timeless masterwork (#1 in the American Film Institute's 1998 list of Best American Movies) is more than a groundbreaking film. Presented here in a magnificent 60th anniversary digital transfer with revitalized digital audio from the highest quality surviving elements (Disc One), it is also grand entertainment, sharply acted (starting many of Welles' Mercury Players on the road to thriving film careers) and superbly directed with inspired visual flair. Depicting the controversial life of an influential publishing tycoon, this Best Original Screenplay Academy Award® winner (1941) is rooted in themes of power, corruption, vanity - the American Dream lost in the mystery of a dying man's last word: "Rosebud."
"A two-hour tornado of a documentary" (Time) nominated for the 1995 Best Documentary Oscar®, The Battle Over Citizen Kane (Disc Two) chronicles the titanic clash between Welles, RKO Studios and publishing magnate William Randolph Hearst, whose life and accomplishments reportedly inspired Citizen Kane.
