Following the death of a publishing tycoon, news reporters scramble to discover the meaning of his final utterance.
The voice of the newsreel announcer at the beginning of the film is provided by William Alland, who plays the reporter Mr. Thompson.
Charles Foster Kane:
The jigsaw puzzle that Susan is putting together changes considerably between the shot where Kane walks into the large room and asks her what she's doing and the next cut, where Kane is standing in front of the large fireplace. The amount of puzzle that she has completed increases greatly between the 2 shots.
In a very rare move the director's credit is shown on the same card as the cinematographer's. This was Orson Welles's personal decision to show his thanks to cinematographer Toland for his enormous contributions to the film, meaning equal rights.
