    Orson Welles "Kane" signature "Snow Globe" three-piece suit from Citizen Kane. Orson Welles "Kane" signature "Snow Globe" three-piece suit from Citizen Kane. (TCF, 1941) Regarded as the #1 greatest American film of the 20th Century.  Nominated for eight Academy Awards and winning one for Orson Welles and Herman J. Mankiewicz for Best Writing, Original Screenplay.  In his very first feature film, Orson Welles was just 25 years old when he directed, co-wrote, produced and starred in Citizen Kane.  This three-piece suit was designed by Edward Stevenson and worn by Welles in his Oscar nominated role as "Kane" when his second wife (Dorothy Comingore) leaves him and he destroys her bedroom, picks up the snow globe, puts it in his pocket and walks by the hall of mirrors.  The snow globe is the symbol of his childhood and the last tangible artifact he holds as he utters his last word "Rosebud".  Truly a significant piece of film history from one of the most innovative and acclaimed films of all time!
