Citizen Kane (RKO, 1941)

Citizen Kane (RKO, 1941). One Sheet (27" X 41") Style A.
The American Film Institute has labeled it "The Best Film Ever Made," and many agree. This ever elusive style A one sheet is more beautifully detailed than you'd think upon first glance. Look closely. The central image is that of a clenched-fist, determined, young Foster Kane, a character so perfectly realized by the superb vision of Orson Welles in his prime. At his feet are four key moments from the film: Kane orating to a screaming crowd, Kane cavorting with chorus line dollies, Kane resplendent in a fine smoking jacket with his new wife, and the all-important imagery of Kane as a child -- the artist depicts the boy wistfully staring upward at his older self, cradling the one item he would forever hold dearest of all his possessions. Some top linenbacking and minimal airbrush touchup has left this true cornerstone collective in magnificent condition. There were corner and single background pinholes and very minor edge chips with tiny chips in the crossfolds and corners. Very Fine- on Linen. Grade: 75, Service No.: 1385301
