18th Feb 200620:30FilmTrinity College Film SocietyTHE MAGNIFICENT AMBERSONS (1942) Orson Welles. Welles will forever be remembered for 'Citizen Kane,' but his second film 'The Magnificent Ambersons' made only a year later is equally audacious in cinematography. Welles tells the story of the decline of a once great family linking the dramatic change in their fortunes with the dramatic changes occuring in America at that time. The revolutionary camera angles are as fresh and innovative as ever. The film is also infamous for being messed about by the studios. In Welles' absence some 50 minutes and an unhappy ending were cut and then destroyed. In spite of this Welles' genius still shines through. While this film is not as well known as 'Citizen Kane' it is certainly as deserving of interest (Winstanley Lecture Theatre).
