As we had announced previously already, Warner Home Video has been working on a DVD version of Orson Welles’ masterpiece, Citizen Kane. Now we have been able to find out that the DVD is scheduled for a release on September 25!
Condemned in its own day as too controversial, “Citizen Kane” has become the standard by which all other cinema is based. Ranked by the American Film Institute and countless critics and film historians as the greatest American film of all time, “Kane” retrospectively examined the life of one Charles Foster Kane, a powerful and influential man with more than a few similarities to real magnates of the time including media mogul William Randolph Hearst. But despite the power of Kane, his life, and ultimate death, were a mystery was reflected differently to all who knew him.
We will, of course, keep you posted when more information on this highly anticipated title comes in, but at least the September 25 release date seems to be fixed by now.
