"There's only one person in the world who's going to decide what I'm going to do and that's me..."
- Charles Foster Kane
Citizen Kane is one of the all time great movies in the history of cinema. The American Film Institute ranks the movie as the greatest film of all time in it's "100 Greatest Movies List". In 1941, a young Orson Welles was given unprecedented free rein to make the movie he wanted to make, and in response he "made the greatest movie of all time" in the words of Roger Ebert and countless other movie critics and fans.

"The legends of "Citizen Kane" and Orson Welles were, in the next half-century, to become one of the central myths of Hollywood: how a boy genius in his mid-20s was given a completely free rein to make exactly the movie he wanted to make, and how in response he made the greatest movie of all time, only to see both the film and his own career chewed up and spat out by the venal, small-minded Hollywood establishment. Welles became the great outsider hero of cinema, central to the French auteur critics, championed by independent filmmakers, cited by anyone who wants to make an argument for film art over film commerce."
Roger Ebert, 1991
