Behind the Scenes: Citizen Kane (1941)

Citizen Kane (MovieHistoryPics)

Orson Welles (seated by the giant megaphone) directs a scene from 1941’s Citizen Kane while laid up with a broken ankle he suffered during the shoot. The visor-adorned gentleman next to the camera is cinematographer Gregg Toland.

The magnificent movie blog Cinephilia and Beyond has a new Twitter feed Film History in Pics that’s full of classic production stills such as the Citizen Kane image above. Definitely worth a follow.
