Orson Welles' timeless classic is coming to Blu-ray in the very near future!

In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Brothers seems to be preparing 'Citizen Kane: 70th Anniversary Ultimate Collector's Edition' for Blu-ray with a suggested list price of $64.99!

Depicting the controversial life of an influential publishing tycoon, this Best Original Screenplay Academy Award® winner (1941) is rooted in themes of power, corruption, vanity -- the American Dream lost in the mystery of a dying man's last word: "Rosebud."

Amazon also has an exclusive version that adds 'The Magnificent Ambersons' on DVD with a suggested list price of $79.89.

As of right now, both titles are available at steep discounts!
