‘Citizen Kane’ Movie Summary

As Charles Foster Kane dies, he speaks his last word, rosebud, as snow globe slips from his hand and shatters on the floor.

    1. ‘Touch of Evil’ is an excellent film. I don’t know if it’s on anyone’s list. We will review ‘The Third Man’ sometime as a 100 greatest film.
