"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:
