Orson Welles' 'Citizen Kane' Oscar Statue: It Could Be Yours


At 25 years old, Orson Welles co-wrote, directed, and starred in "Citizen Kane," which was inspired by the life of newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst. Despite being widely considered the greatest film of all time, "Kane" only ended up taking home a single Academy Award -- for best screenplay, in 1941.


On Monday 12 Dec, Nate D. Sanders auctions, a Los Angeles-based auction house, announced that it was auctioning off Welles' storied "Citizen Kane" statuette, which has passed through quite a few sets of hands over the course of its 70-year lifespan.

The auction continues... As of Tuesday morning, the highest bid was priced at $72,890. The auction ends on Dec. 20 at 5 p.m. PST
