4 KAEL, PAULINE The Citizen Kane Book
Boston Little Brown 1971 
First Edition. Signed and inscribed by the author, Pauline Kael: “For Dick & Merle & Moxie - with love, Pauline.” This is the rarest of Kael's work. Pauline Kael's essay claiming that Welles did not write any of the Citizen Kane screenplay has now been thoroughly disproved and discredited with research from the RKO archives, and Robert Carringer's thorough study, ‘The Making of Citizen Kane'. Still, the book does contain as its redeeming feature the first printing of the Citizen Kane screenplay and the cutting continuity. Illustrated. Lightly used copy in a bright dust jacket with a tiny bit of wear. Listed in 100 Books on Hollywood & the Movies.
