Charles Foster Kane is many things to many people. And the world got to know him in 1941 when the Freshman film of Orson Welles hit a limited number of screens, but still managed to snag multiple Oscar nominations and one win.
Citizen Kane is the portrait of a man, as painted by the people who knew him. Shown out of order and through hazy recollection. Equal parts American success story and American tragedy, the film is often considered among the best ever to come from the United States.
With multiple battles brewing behind the scenes and more Hollywood folklore than you can shake an Academy Award at, the Nighthawks bring Oscar Czar Cameron Maris in to discuss the legendary Citizen Kane.
