Warner has announced a September 13th release date for Ultimate Collector's Editions of Orson Welles' masterpiece Citizen Kane (1941) on standard DVD and Blu-Ray.

Some bonus features (below) are carry-overs, but other are new to this collection.

Orson Welles' masterwork (#1 in the American Film Institute's list of Best American Movies) dazzles anew in a superb 70th-anniversary digital transfer. It’s grand entertainment, sharply acted (starting many of Welles' Mercury Players on the road to thriving film careers) and directed with inspired visual flair. Chronicling the stormy life of an influential publishing tycoon, this Best Original Screenplay Academy Award winner (1941) is rooted in themes of power, corruption, vanity – the American Dream lost in the mystery of a dying man’s last word: “Rosebud.”
