About this item
DVD, R, 90 minutes, HBO HOME VIDEO
New from Executive Producers Tony Scott ("Enemy of The state") and Ridley Scott ("Thelma and Louse"), "RKO 281" the working title for "Citizen Kane" has been called the greatest movie of all time. Its visionary creator, Orson Welles, was only 24 when he arrived in Hollywood following the acclaim and scandal that erupted over the live radio broadcast of "War Of The Worlds". This was to be his first motion picture. The subject? An aging, obsessive newspaper publisher who controlled his enemies as ruthlessly as he controlled his friends; whose lavish estate was half the size of Rhode Island; and whose mistress was destined for fame whether she wanted it or not. He would bear so close a resemblance to the wealthy newspaper publisher William Randolph Hearst, that Hearst himself would do anything to shut the movie down. The battle between Welles and Hearst over "Citizen Kane" is the stuff of legend, rich with tales of sexual blackmail, money changing hands and threats behind closed doors. Now those doors are being opened. Take a front row seat. The battle over "RKO 281" is about to begin.
