One of my astute film students has noticed that in a production
still of CITIZEN KANE in our text (Film Art, Bordwell& Thompson,
p. 15), Orson Welles is directing from a wheelchair.  She
(and I) ask why?  Was it simply to reduce fatigue, or was he
injured at some point during production (obviously when he
wasn't acting himself!). We'd appreciate info.
