Thinking Aloud
Great Works: Citizen Kane
The film character Charles Foster Kane, the movie director Orson Welles, and the media mogul William Randolph Hearst form an unholy trinity, at least, in some minds. Each man was tragically ambitious and hubristic you might say. Their legacies and personae have become inextricably interwoven by a single piece of art, a classic movie called Citizen Kane. Sharon Swenson from the BYU department of Theater and Media Arts, Joel Campbell from the department of Communications, and Monte Swain from the BYU School of Accountancy discuss Citizen Kane, our selection for Great Works today on Thinking Aloud.—Original airdate: 8/3/2009
