Question about Citizen Kane

Sunday, April 4, 2010 1:36 PM By Simon

Tell me, dear gents...we all know the Famous Last Words opening, yes? Where Charles Foster kane speaks his last word, and dies alone in his mansion? Then, the world throws a fit over what 'Rosebud' is.

But how, I ask, do they know what that word is at all, if he died alone?

Beacuse, as Godard said, cinema is 24 frames of truth per second.
