Orson Welles’s elegiac follow-up to Citizen Kane, on Blu-ray for the first time in an edition packed with special features. This beautiful, nostalgia-suffused second feature by Orson Welles (Citizen Kane)—the subject of one of cinema’s greatest missing-footage tragedies—harks back to turn-of-the-twentieth-century Indianapolis, chronicling the inexorable decline of the fortunes of an affluent family. Adapted from an acclaimed Booth Tarkington novel and characterized by restlessly inventive camera work and powerful performances from a cast including Joseph Cotton (The Third Man), Tim Holt (The Treasure of the Sierra Madre), and Agnes Moorehead (Citizen Kane), the film traces the rifts deepening within the Amberson clan—at the same time as the forces of progress begin to transform the city they once ruled. Though RKO excised over forty minutes of footage, now lost to history, and added an incongruously upbeat ending, The Magnificent Ambersons is an emotionally rich family saga and a masterful elegy for a bygone chapter of American life. SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES New 4K digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack Two audio commentaries, featuring film scholars Robert Carringer, James Naremore and critic Jonathan Rosenbaum New interviews with scholars Simon Callow and Joseph McBride New video essay on the film's cinematographers by scholar François Thomas New video essay on the film's score by scholar Christopher Husted Welles on The Dick Cavett Show in 1970 Segment from Pampered Youth, a 1925 silent adaptation of The Magnificent Ambersons Audio from a 1979 AFI symposium on Welles Two Mercury Theatre radio plays: Seventeen (1938), an adaptation of another Booth Tarkington novel by Welles, and The Magnificent Ambersons (1939) Trailer PLUS: An essay by critic Molly Haskell and essays by authors and critics Luc Sante, Geoffrey O'Brien, Farran Smith Nehme, and Jonathan Lethem, and excerpts from an unfinished 1982 memoir by Welles
A RITUALISTIC MURDER Stephen Noble, a board member of Dragon Gate Industries (DGI), is decapitated. DGI, a front company for wizards, decides to provide executive protection services for Noble's son, Graham, and daughter, Rayna. But Graham doesn't trust wizards and refuses their offer, so DGI hires Jonathan Shade and his team to keep the Noble family safe. GUILTY CLIENTS The Nobles are from the other side of the Dragon Gate, and in that dimension, they committed crimes against the Marshall Clan. And now the Clan has come through the Gate to exact their revenge. While Graham and Rayna were too young to have been a part of the death and mayhem in the other land, honor dictates that they must pay for the crimes of their family. INHUMAN ATTACKERS How can Jonathan protect clients who are willing to kneel and accept death at any moment? How can he and his team handle thirteen deadly warriors willing to die to accomplish their goal? And how can Jonathan defeat the deadly creatures the Marshall Clan has brought with them to our world? Creatures that will destroy anything in their path as they hunt their prey. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joe Hempel.
