Citizen Kane’s 70th Birthday

Syndicated from: Steve Paikin

It was shrouded in controversy from its inception, to its filming, to its eventual screening.   It was nominated for nine Academy Awards and yet captured only one.   Still, 70 years after its debut in New York City on May 1st, 1941, Citizen Kane still tops many critics' lists as the best motion picture ever to come out of Hollywood.   Tonight, we'll interview director and author Peter Bogdanovich, once a great friend of Orson Welles'. And we'll debate why the search for the meaning of "Rosebud" still animates us seven decades after Welles' masterpiece hit the silver screen.   Meantime, please enjoy this web-exclusive interview with Bogdanovich, who waxes eloquent on his favourite directors, the best movie he ever made, and two marvelously talented actresses: Audrey Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor.
