Welles’s ‘Citizen Kane’ Scared Theater Owners, Newspapers: DVDs

To celebrate the 70th anniversary of Orson Welles’s "Citizen Kane," Warner Home Video has issued a beautifully restored, three-disc edition that’s available in DVD and Blu-ray.

So much has been written about Welles the boy genius and the making of "Citizen Kane" that the film itself is sometimes treated as an afterthought. Watching it again -- I’ve seen it at least a dozen times over the years -- reminded me of just how electrifying it is.
