See these films: Citizen Kane + The Devil and Daniel Webster @ the Brattle

Citizen Kane theatrical trailer

The photography and editing are revolutionary, but the score deserves a lot of the credit for making Orson Welles's masterpiece Citizen Kane (1941; 2:15 pm) number one on everyone's ten-best-movies-of-all-time list. Watch it with that in mind when it screens as part of the Brattle Theatre's ongoing Music For Movies: Bernard Herrmann Centennial Repertory Series. Also screening is another story about diabolical temptation, William Dieterle's adaptation of the Stephen Vincent Benét story The Devil and Daniel Webster (1941; 4:45 pm), in which a farmer barters his soul for riches and hires the crack orator of the title to get him out of the deal - Herrmann won his only Oscar for the score.
