Citizen Kane plays at Hearts Castle

I had heard that this was coming, wish I could have made it. I'm sure it brought a lot of publicity to the Mansion, but I'm sure Hearst is rolling in his grave. If you were Hearst's ancestor, would you do it?

Kane wasn't, on paper, meant to be directly about Hearst alone; it's a composite of several contemporary tycoons, including Insull and MCormick of Chicago. Hearst's own paranoia connected far more dots than there were in reality.

It always facinates me; how rich and influential men can still at times be so small and petty. I thought one of the main points about great wealth was that it gave you the freedom to not give a damn what anyone else thinks. Look at how bent out of shape Donald Trump gets about Rosie O'Donnell. But maybe, for some, getting to be that rich was so important in itself, that once achieved, it became something to be preserved in and of itself, that the money becomes the identity.
