Citizen Kane Trailer

"It isn't enough to tell us what a man did, you've got to tell us who he was." Everyone knows this film. We don't cover home entertainment releases, but occasionally we will make an exception. Such as, for example, the "#1 movie of all-time" - Orson Welles' Citizen Kane, which was first released in 1941. To celebrate the 75th anniversary of the film, Warner Home Video is re-releasing Citizen Kane on Blu-ray this fall. To mark the occasion, they've debuted a new trailer. If only this was getting a theatrical re-release to go along with the Blu-ray, but perhaps now is not the right time. Orson Welles plays newspaper baron Charles Foster Kane, and the film examines his life and his loss of ideals as he gains more power and money. Watch below.

Here's the new 75th anniversary re-release trailer for Orson Welles' Citizen Kane, found on YouTube:

Citizen Kane

Original description: When a reporter is assigned to decipher newspaper magnate Charles Foster Kane's dying words, his investigation gradually reveals the fascinating portrait of a complex man who rose from obscurity to staggering heights. Though Kane's friend and colleague Jedediah Leland, and his mistress, Susan Alexander, shed fragments of light on Kane's life, the reporter fears he may never penetrate the mystery of the elusive man's final word, "Rosebud." Citizen Kane was directed by Orson Welles, and was first released in late 1941. Despite being nominated for eight Oscars, it only won one - for Best Writing. The film has since gone on to be listed as the #1 film of all-time as ranked by the AFI. Citizen Kane is getting a new Blu-ray re-release this year, but no theatrical re-release (as far as we know). Is it one of your favorites?
