Saturday Night at the Movies: “Citizen Kane”

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GuZ6fm5F7bE

It was the anniversary of Orson Welles’ death recently, so here’s Citizen Kane.

Whatever Frye might have thought of the movie itself, he hated the soundtrack.  From his 1942 diary:

Ideas for article on movie music. Orson Welles’ incessant woo-woo noises, full of  drum rolls & trombones slithering from solemn burp to gloomy blop. Most incidental music is just ‘flourish,’ ‘sennet,’ ‘exeunt with a dead march’ stuff, a bag of tricks and ‘sound effects,’ in short.

(For some reason, part one of the movie, above, is not embeddable, so click on the image and then hit the YouTube link.  But the rest of the movie, after the jump, is embedded and can be watched here.)
