AS THE CREDITS ROLL: The (in)famously truncated studio version of Orson Welles’ masterpiece (from which more than an hour of footage was excised—and, tragically, lost forever), has no credit “roll.” Instead, we hear Welles read the names and contributions of his talented cast and crew.
THE MUSIC: “End Title,” composed by Bernard Hermann
SEMI-RELEVANT FACTOID: Conspicuously absent from the spoken end credits is the film’s composer. Furious that much of his work was cut in the studio version, Hermann (who had worked with Welles on Citizen Kane) demanded that his name be removed.
