Description

Citizen Kane is arguable the most admired and significant film since the advent of talking pictures. To study it even briefly is to learn a great deal about American history, motion-picture style, and the literary aspects of motion-picture scripts. This volume will represent the essential writings on Kane. It gives the reader a lively set of critical interpretations, together with the necessary production information, historical background, and technical understanding to comprehend the film's larger cultural significance.show more
