Eveybody’s talking about Citizen Kane. It was true in 1941 and still true among film lovers today. The remarkable film was innovative and a show piece for the then new director Orson Welles.
Citizen Kane tells the tale of a media mogul’s life. At the time, William Randolph Hearst was the largest newspaper magnate. He was so offended by the references and similarities to the Kane character that he prohibited mention of the film in any of his papers.
Today, one could use the name Rupert Murdock and tell a similar tale.
