Signature Orson Welles "Kane" Coat

"Citizen Kane is considered by many to be the best film of all time. It certainly is an extraordinary work of art by a man named Orson Welles who co-wrote, directed, produced and starred in this classic. As the character Charles Foster Kane, Welles became a newspaper tycoon, loved a sled called Rosebud and wore this fabulous fur coat that is featured in my auction on May 17th and 18th." -Debbie Reynolds



From the catalog:

Signature Orson Welles "Kane" ink coat from Citizen Kane.

Long mink coat with shawl collar and back slit. Handwritten in pocket, "O. Welles CP-3" with studio cleaning tag. The coat has been treated to preserve the natural beauty of the pelts and a new lining added (with the old one included).

Costume supervision by Edward Stevenson.

Worn by Orson Welles as "Kane" at his newspaper office writing a bad review of his second wife’s Opera performance in Citizen Kane.

Ms. Reynolds, I sure would love to bid on this wonderful piece of Movie history. Alas, I can not afford to do so. I hope that whomever wins this fabulous coat displays it properly.
