Hearst vs. Citizen
Kane
Link with William Randolph
Hearst was Controversial
Any Brilliant Work of Art is a
Composite of Many Stories:
How the work was made,
The people involved,
The work itself, and
The work's legacy.
Kane, acted by Welles, is a
fictional version of real-life
multimillionaire newspaper
publisher William Randolph
Hearst (1863–1951).

Hearst vs. Citizen Kane
Randolph Hearst (1863–1951).
was outraged at the
unauthorized, unflattering
interpretation and tried to
prevent the film’s release.
When that failed, Hearst used his
newspapers to prevent the film
from becoming popular refusing
ads for the film and threatening
to stop advertising and reviewing
RKO films in the future.
There were also personal attacks
made on Welles
All these actions were effective.
The film failed badly at the box
office.

Welles and Dolores Del Rio
Citizen Kane was nominated for 9
Academy Awards but won only one
for Best Original Screenplay

  8. Hearst's efforts to destroy Citizen Kane are legendary. He is said to have lobbied against it with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the body which decides the Oscars, resulting in How Green Was My Valley winning best film in 1942 in its place. Hearst also kept adverts for the movie out of his many newspapers, and one of his allies in Hollywood is even said to have tried to buy the footage in order to burn it just prior to the movie's release. Another story is that FBI chief J Edgar Hoover launched a decade-long investigation into Welles as a result of Hearst's anger over the film.
