Summary

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.

Author Biography

V.F. Perkins has lectured on film studies at Warwick University since 1978.
