  • Citizen Kane "is a 1941 American drama film directed, co-written, produced by, and starring Orson Welles...
    The story is a film à clef that examines the life and legacy of Charles Foster Kane, played by Welles, a character based in part upon the American newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst,[6] Chicago tycoons Samuel Insull and Harold McCormick,[7] and aspects of Welles' own life.[8] Upon its release, Hearst prohibited mention of the film in any of his newspapers. Kane's career in the publishing world is born of idealistic social service, but gradually evolves into a ruthless pursuit of power. Narrated principally through flashbacks, the story is told through the research of a newsreel reporter seeking to solve the mystery of the newspaper magnate's dying word: "Rosebud"."
