Trivia - "Citizen Kane"
Hollywood Lost and Found

Movie Trivia


If you look very carefully, when Kane visits Susan Alexander's apartment for the first time, you can see a snowglobe on her dresser, in front of her mirror - presumably the very same one that Kane drops when he dies.

Cheese cloth was run across the film to make the newsreel on Kane's death look more realistic.

William Randolph Hearst was angered by this movie, which was obviously based on his life. According to an essay written by Gore Vidal (a close friend of Hearst's), "Rosebud" was Hearst's name for long-time mistress Marion Davies' private parts.
