Great article. I created a PDF file out of it. If anybody would like a copy, please drop me a line.

Thanks for the heads up Barry.

I'm not at home at the moment to reference the book, but there is a great work entitled "The Making of Citizen Kane" which explains a lot of the magic and wizardry employed by Toland and Welles.

Many of the deep-focus shots were accomplished by double or triple exposures, and special split-focus lenses.

Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain,
