PG | | Drama, Mystery
Following the death of a publishing tycoon, news reporters scramble to discover the meaning of his final utterance.
Despite all the publicity, the film was a box-office flop and was quickly consigned to the RKO vaults. At 1941's Academy Awards the film was booed every time one of its nine nominations was announced. It was only re-released to the public in the mid-'50s.
Charles Foster Kane:
At the party scene where Kane dances with the girls, there are several shots of his reflection in the mirror. The camera shoots directly into the mirror and its silhouette can be clearly seen.
The film's opening title card is presented in complete silence, briefly with no music.
Some of the Turner prints have the famous RKO logo removed and replaced with the Turner logo.
$216,239 (USA) (5 May 1991)
