Citizen Kane

Easter egg: On disc one, "On the Set" subsection of the "Production Notes" - the eleventh screen, another sled appears, and if you click on it, you'll find a 1994 interview snippet with editor Robert Wise.

Easter egg: If you click on the sled seen on the "Special Features" screen, you'll find a 1997 interview with actress Ruth Warrick. During this five minute and 40 second piece, Warrick discusses issues such as the atmosphere on the Kane set, her interactions with Welles, and a few other interesting topics. (From the 2 disc special edition 60th anniversary set-2001).

Character mistake: During the dancing girl scene, as they are singing the praises of Kane, the girl to the immediate right sings out of time with the rest of the dancers during the line "His favorite son." Even though she forgets to sing the line, she can be heard singing it a bit too late. (00:41:00)
