The Magnificent Ambersonsby V.F. Perkins
This work presents the author's own insight to Orson Welles's film "The Magnificent Ambersons". Second only to "Citizen Kane" in work, this film can never be seen as he intended it after being heavily cut by RKO. However, it remains a remarkable picture of dynastic ruin and social change.
