It’s an early scene, when the imperious banker Walter Parks Thatcher (George Coulouris), the guardian of the young and rich Charles Foster Kane (Orson Welles), reads a letter from his ward. Kane is uninterested in most of his vast corporate holdings, except one: The New York Inquirer. “ ‘I think it would be fun to run a newspaper,’ ” Thatcher reads in Kane’s letter, and fumes.
