Critic John Powers’ favorite movie scene is in Orson Welles’Citizen Kane (1941) when newspaper owner Charles Foster Kane (played by Orson Welles himself) steals his rivals’ best reporters, and then throws a party in his own honor. Powers says:
"As musicians literally sing his praises, we watch Kane dance with chorus girls wearing a look of radiant delight. It’s a moment bursting with promise and cockiness and joie de vivre, made all the more exuberant because Kane’s pleasure is so obviously shared by Welles’ himself. Only 25 – but already famous from Broadway and radio – Welles has the air of a man who knows he’s making a movie that would one day be named the greatest of all time."
Powers reviews My Lunches with Orson, a new book that collects and edits the table talk between Welles and his friend, filmmaker Henry Jaglom.
