"It's Terrific!" boasts the original poster, and it couldn't have been more correct. Considered by many to be the greatest film of all time, Orson Welles's first film is a masterpiece in the truest sense. Welles plays Charles Foster Kane, a media tycoon whose death sparks an investigation into his life. Inspired by the real life of William Randolph Hearst, Citizen Kane is the most influential film ever made.
