When Orson Welles took the challenge to direct his first movie he regarded John Ford’s Stagecoach as a guide of how to make a movie. That’s why he watched it over 40 times during the making of Citizen Kane, and took good note of how the angles of the camera were chosen or how the actors and the stagecoach chase scene were shot… and instead of talking about the greatest film of all time, according to film critics, I change the subject and talk about Stagecoach and my favorite movie-maker, John Ford. I’m sorry, but here it is, Citizen Kane.
