"The Struggle to Make Citizen Kane" | Michael Phillips
Senior Services at Parkway Central Library
Part Three of the Seven-Part Special Lecture Series: Orson Welles & The Golden Age of Hollywood
Michael Phillips is the Film Critic for the Chicago Tribune. In recent years, Phillips introduced more than 100 films on Turner Classic Movies — including Citizen Kane — and has hosted a special retrospective showing of the greatest films of Orson Welles. This talk will highlight the intense struggle to make Citizen Kane against long odds. We now know that some of the executives at RKO hoped Welles would fail — and that the film crew included at least one spy who reported every mistake Welles made to the front office.
Tickets are not required, but please RSVP on Eventbrite or email Dick Levinson at firstname.lastname@example.org for this and other dates in the series.
(Event will be held in person at Parkway Central's Montgomery Auditorium)
