Welles never forgave Pauline Kael for writing The Citizen Kane Book but she's her usual entertaining self in the book. The first quarter (which appeared in The New Yorker as "Raising Kane") is Pauline Kael's interpretive essay on the movies of the '30's, as honestly antiarty as she is, and on this 'shallow' but great masterpiece which appeared before this country began to "hate itself.

Orson Welles, Herman J. Mankiewicz, Pauline Kael. The complete screenplay of one of the world's most famous and controversial films "A definitive chronicle of the making of the film" Sheridan Morley, Films & Filming This is the complete companion to Citizen Kane - the film that was "designed to shock" (Kenneth Tynan) - one of the best-loved and best-known movies in the history of Hollywood and still the most staggering. Not only was this Orson Welles's first film as actor and director but most of the cast were also new to the cinema.

  • Interesting book about a process called making a movie. Welles went from genius to unknown fast. He always said he was constantly looking for money which required him to do movies he probably should not have. Film schools have probably studied him from opening scene in excess. Remains a wonderful subject. Citizen Kane was always my number one movie from the first time I saw the camera go up the fence at Xanadu.

  • Great read. Thanks!

  • Interesting example of proper screen script formatting and interesting background view of style of making a movie.

  • I expected something different. It's a script and difficult to read. Not your fault though. I just didn't understand what it was.

  • Citizen Kane Book was disappointing it was a script where you read the lines of each person this is not what we though we were getting.

  • In my opinion, James Naremore is the most perceptive and insightful writer about Welles' work as a filmaker. But McBride is also good, so are Andre Bazin and Jonathan Rosenbaum. But whatever you do, beware of that gossip mongering charlatin Pauline Kael. What a phony she is, the woman had built a reputation as an advocate of art, but in fact she only likes and respects conventionality, and has never forgiven Orson Welles for exposing the studio system as being first and foremost a place where money is the only real consideration. I really think that she and Charles Higham hated Welles because they were somehow jealous that he could do so much, and do it so well. Why would any writer seek to make it difficult for a artistically creative talent like Welles (such a rare thing in Hollywood history) to recieve patronage? But thats exactly what they did, and in Highams case one book was not enough for him, his jealousy was such that he devoted two books trying to convince people that Welles most highly regarded works were really the products of other peoples talents, and the second book was quickly finished in time for the aging Welles to hear about it just before he could die. Why are some people so jealous of originality, and so angry about it, and determined to stop it wherever it exists? Some people simply cannot live with independance and originality, they can only abide with the conventional. This is the type of person Pauline Kael was- in my own humble opinion. I hope she is proud of hurting a man who gave us such calibur of filmaking; contemporary popular movie combined with artistic masterpiece. If it was the product of the studio system, why could the studio system never do anything comprable ever again? And why is it also that every film Welles ever made DID manage to convey the same type of artistic vision and depth? The only thing Welles' later films lacked was the right amount of financial backing, something which Kael sought to ensure would continue as long as he continued to make films. She must be so proud of herself (I realise that Kael does not understand artistic genius, but she can recognize sarcasim, that much is certain)

    The fact of the matter is also that I once enjoyed Pauline Kael, her introduction to "the films of Marlon Brando" was very good. And many people feel like I do. Thats right Ms Kael, in the end you did not hurt Welles, you only hurt yourSELF!

    Another thing that has always bothered me about it is why do these critics always fault Welles for the fact that he used a co-scriptwriter for 'Citizen Kane', and attempt to take credit for the films innovative style from him because of it, yet these same critics give nothing but credit for to the likes of Alfred Hitchcock and John Ford, who BOTH used scriptwriters on each and every film they ever made, these two directors not even contributing so much as a word of dialouge. They barely even give a word of credit to the people who wrote the scripts for these two men, now why is that?

    One more thing, I wish that these "intellectual" critics would remember one more thing about Orson Welles; Yes, maybe he did take a bit more credit for "Citizen Kane" than might have been his due, not giving Mankenwitz enough. but he also took the HEAT for the film from both Hearst AND Hollywood. It damned near destroyed his career, and it was probably the most promising career in Hollywood history. Yes, he might not have shared enough of the credit, but when the film came out, it was not seen as any badge of honor to be associated with it, and THAT is what I feel Welles was not asking anybody to share in. He produced the film, he had recieved all of the pr-production build-up, and he was taking all of the responsibility for the backlash, and there was plenty. If you go back and look, you will find that Mankenwitcz was gratefull about Welles, Welles was doing him a favor by taking so much credit, thats all. And Welles sure shared the oscar for the script
