Just discovered Blufr via Dave Winr. It's a game of way! or no way! Like the old true or false quizzes from the days or yore. You remember.

So far, I have a score of 1488. But, I have to quit at this question:

The word 'rosebud' is never actually said in the film "Citizen Kane."

If I had to guess, I'd guess, no way! But, really, I have no idea!

it's definitely said. i can't remember whether you actually hear *charles foster kane* say it, but i remember the newspaper guys discussing why he said it and what it means, which is the reason they go around talking to people from his life.

* note: i could be totally wrong since i haven't seen it all the way through since around 1998.

It is said. I think it is the last spoken word in the film.

I thought it was the first spoken word.

I'm with Kem. Orson Welles/Charles Foster Kane says it at the beginning. The rest of the movie is (partly) about unraveling what the heck CFK meant when he said "Rosebud."

OK--Blufr is really a first-class time-waster. Thanks, Marie!
