New Video Highlights The Visual Similarities Of REBECCA & CITIZEN KANE

The openings and endings of Hitchcock and Welles's films are compared in a new video.






Was Orson Welles's 1941 debut, Citizen Kane, influenced visually by Alfred Hitchcock's first Hollywood movie, the previous year's Rebecca?

This video by Rob Stone lines up both films' opening and closing scenes, highlighting the visual similarities in the work of two of cinema's greatest artists, and drawing parallels between both movies' iconic homes - Manderley and Xanadu.
