Classic Movie: Citizen Kane (G, 1941)
Multimillionaire newspaper tycoon, Charles Foster Kane played by Orson Welles, dies alone in his mansion, Xanadu, speaking only one word "Rosebud".

They recount their experiences in a series of flashbacks that reveal Kane'slife, though unfortunately not enough to unlock the riddle of his dying breath.
As the investigation of Kane'slife continues, what comes to light, is a fascinating display of his rise to fame and power and how eventually he topples and his relationship with others begin to deteriorate and he dies old and alone.
