Charles Foster Kane is the child of a poor family. When he is still a young boy, his mother inherits a large sum of money, allowing Kane to move away and get an education appropriate for his future position. Kane is exceptionally bright, strong-willed and has a volcanic temper. Strikingly ambitious, he throws himself into journalism and before long has taken over no less than thirty-seven newspapers. He decides to go into politics, but an adversary discredits his private life. Kane divorces his wife, who dies along with their only child in a car acci¬dent, then remarries, taking an obscure singer as his new wife. He tries to force her on the public, but to no avail, even though he has set up a splendid theater specifically for her. Kane builds a castle and fills it with priceless art, retiring there to live with his wife, who can’t stand the splendid, ornate solitude of the castle and ultimately abandons him there. Kane dies alone, longing for the innocent games and child play of his youth.
