366 Days at the Drive-In: Day 95

The Date: January 3

The Movie: Citizen Kane (1941)

What Is It?: The movie that inspires groaning skepticism in every cinema 101 student because of its heavy “Greatest Movie Ever Made” reputation. The movie that causes said students to heave a collective sigh of relief when they discover how entertaining, odd, and fabulous-looking it is. The movie that royally pissed off William Randolph Hearst because it mocked his canary Marion Davies.

Why Today?: On this day in 1897, Marion Davies is born.
