Summary
Regarded as one of the finest films ever made, Citizen Kane tells the story of idealism corrupted by wealth. Prominent publisher, William Randolph Hearst, saw the film as a thinly disguised version of his career and attempted to suppress it. The controversy has faded, but not the film's power and brilliance. Based on the life of newspaper tycoon William Randolph Hearst, it provoked everything from legends to songs. The movie was deemed so controversial that is was recalled from distribution and was not released until after Hearst's death
