Warner Home Video

1985: Actor and filmmaker Orson Welles, whose first movie was 1941's "Citizen Kane," often ranked as one of the all-time greatest films, dies from a heart attack at the age of 70 in Los Angeles. An outsider to the studio system, he directed a total of only 13 movies in his career, including the critically acclaimed "The Magnificent Ambersons" and "Touch of Evil." He also worked extensively in theater and radio, including the now legendary 1938 broadcast of H.G. Wells' "The War of the Worlds."
