When did Citizen Kane first release?

Citizen Kane was first released in 1941. IMDb describes the plot as: “Following the death of publishing tycoon Charles Foster Kane, reporters scramble to uncover the meaning of his final utterance; ‘Rosebud’.”

At the same time, the outlet also notes it to be one of the “top-rated movies.” Even though the film graced the cinemas seven decades ago, there are people who admire its cinematography and storyline even today.

While people are looking forward to the 4K version, some cannot stop talking about the Criterion’s poster.
