Biografia breu
Orson Welles was gifted in many arts -- such as  magic, piano, and painting -- as a child.  After graduating from high school he skipped college in favor of a trip to Europe.  Deciding to become an actor, he made his New York stage debut as Tybalt in "Romeo and Juliet" in 1934. He began working with John Houseman and formed the Mercury Theatre with him in 1937. In 1938 they produced the famous prank radio broadcast of "The War of the Worlds." Welles' first film to be seen in theaters was Citizen Kane (1941), considered by many to be the best film ever made.  Appreciation of his talent and skill as a filmmaker has continued to climb since his death in 1985.

C (Indifferent).

There's some great dialogue, and some iconic imagery. The story just doesn't work, though. For the first part of the movie, things are communicated too poorly (especially the characters) to know why anything is happening. Then the "mystery" in the second part of the movie is predictable.

Perhaps greatest film of all time, certainly the best black & white.
