Walking Shadows by John Evangelist Walsh

Book Description

Walking Shadows dissects the wild, high-profile battle between newspaper tycoon William Randolph Hearst and brash young filmmaker Orson Welles over Welles's film Citizen Kane. In 1940-1941 it became the center of public controversy and scandal. The picture portrayed the ruthless career of an all-powerful magnate bearing (not accidentally) a striking resemblance to Hearst, who immediately tried to kill the film. John Evangelist Walsh illuminates the conflict between these two outsize personalities and brings Hearst's vengeful anti-Kane campaign to the fore. He provides thorough documentation, supplemental notes, and an extended bibliography.
