Orson Wells - Citizen Kane“You see, I had the best contract anybody had for Kane. Nobody comes on the set. Nobody gets to look at the rushes. Nothing! You just make the picture and that’s it. If I hadn’t had that contract, they would have stopped me at the beginning just by the nature of the script. But it was such conditions! I’ve never had anything remotely equal to that contract since. So it isn’t just the success. What spoiled me is having had the joy of kind of liberty once in my life and never having been able to enjoy it again.” –Orson Welles
