Sociology Film Series Presents: Citizen Kane

Kane, a newspaper publisher, living alone in his vast palatial estate for the last years of his life, with a "No trespassing" sign on the gate, dies in a bed while holding a snow globe and utters "Rosebud ..." The globe slips from his dying hand and smashes. Kane's death becomes sensational news around the world. Newsreel reporter Jerry Thompson tries to find out about Kane's private life and, in particular, to discover the meaning behind his last word. Citizen Kane is a 1941 American drama film directed, co-written, produced by, and starring Orson Welles.
