The battle over Citizen Kane: Examines the lives of William Randolph Hearst, the powerful newspaper magnate, and director/actor Orson Welles as they clashed over Welles first film: "Citizen Kane". Hearst's reaction upon learning about the film, which portrayed him unfavorably, was to work to suppress it and destroy Welles. Major movie theater chains refused to show "Citizen Kane", and Welles' masterpiece virtually disappeared for almost 25 years. Never again would Orson Welles gain control of a major Hollywood production

Determined to get Vargas out of his hair, Quinlan makes a deal with local crime boss Uncle Joe Grandi to frame Susan on a drug rap. Dissecting the nature of good and evil in a hallucinatory, nightmarish ambiance, this baroque south-of-the-border mystery opens with one of the most remarkably extended long takes in movie history

3 editions published between 1989 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 943 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A provocative, absorbing visualization of Ayn Rand's powerful book, The Fountainhead follows the story of a talented architect (Gary Cooper) forced to compromise his art for the woman he loves (Patricia Neal). As the architect is drawn deeper into the world of sycophants and cheats who surround his lover, he becomes more and more emotionally isolated and finally blows up his own housing project--with disatrous results. Masterfully directed by King Vidor, The Fountainhead is compelling drama at its best. Highlighted by an all-star cast including Gary Cooper, Patricia Neal and Raymond Massey, it is a story that explodes on the screen as both top-notch entertainment and food for thought. A searing indictment of the compelling question: what is more important, the individual or society at large?"--Slipcase
