Citizen Kane is often considered one of the greatest films of all time, and Bernard Herrmann's original score is almost as groundbreaking as the movie itself. Utilizing the shorter, more focused musical cues found in radio, Herrmann's score serves to punctuate the action onscreen to create an interplay between the visuals and the background music that was unlike anything else at the time. Though Herrmann would go on to have a celebrated career, his work on Citizen Kane would prove to be a career milestone that would be hard to top., Rovi
