Crikey! Harvey: I noted that he was the last surviving member of the cast, and provided all this information (except for his death), some months ago.
Obviously, we have closed a circle, or . . . "Wound the charm up."
The Old Man, Citizen Kane, as played by Orson Welles, has died again, at last, in the person of Sonny Bupp, who played him as a child in 1941, when he was relatively happy, before he became famous.
Sonny almost died that same year, not in a car accident, but in a run-away buggy on the set of William Dieterle's THE DEVIL AND DANIEL WEBSTER, but he survived quietly, to die suddenly and briefly famous again, the other week.
That is one of the messages of, CITIZEN KANE, the Greatest of American Movies.
His widow may indeed be overwhelmed by so much sudden, fleeting attention, after so many decades.
Indeed, Harvey, who will remember us?
Condolences to all.
