Joseph Cotten's name needs to be reentered correctly.

It's good, but I would really like to see the ending Orson Welles wanted.

This is so tough to rank because we don't have Orson Welles' ending, if we did I think it may be right up their with Citizen Kane.

It is a beautiful film and it is interestingly told. The story is well known behind this movie so I won't go into those details. Engaging and some scenes were deeply moving, but as a whole I felt emotionally disconnected from the proceedings.
