  1. I agree with you about the Academy’s choice (most people would, at this point), but I’m pretty sure Welles never complained about it. He learned how to direct by watching Stagecoach over and over, and later on in his life somebody asked who his favorite directors were, and he replied, “The old masters: John Ford, John Ford, and John Ford.”

  2. What we have to remember is that Citizen Kane wasn’t as regarded then as it is now, which might explain why this film won.

    I should also point out that it is on the National Film Registry list
