Résumé: Drame psychologique. Charles Foster Kane vient de mourir dans son château. Bien que très populaire de son vivant, la foule n'a guère connu de lui que le côté public de sa vie. C'est pourquoi personne n'est en mesure d'expliquer sa dernière parole: "Rosebud". Un reporter entreprend d'élucider ce mystère en interrogeant tous ceux qui ont particulièrement connu Kane. Et nous découvrons progressivement avec eux ce que fut la véritable personnalité de cet homme. Le dernier mot "Rosebud" n'était simplement - aveu de l'échec de sa vie - que le nom de son traîneau d'enfant, symbole de tout ce qui avait manqué au bonheur de son existence. [(c) OCS]. Contient, entre autres, "The battle over Citizen Kane", un documentaire racontant les difficultés éprouvées par Orson Welles avec le magnat de la presse William Randolph Hearst, dont la vie ressemblait énormément au personnage de Charles Foster Kane, ainsi que les commentaires du réalisateur Peter Bogdanovich et du critique de cinéma Roger Ebert.
