David Copperfield Buys Orson Welles' "Citizen Kane" Oscar

Posted: December 21st, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
David Copperfield Buys Orson WellesSubmit Comment
David Copperfield bought Orson Welles' best original screenplay Oscar for "Citizen Kane" at an auction on Tuesday. The magician paid $861,542 for the statuette, outbidding several other collectors.

Despite being named the best film of all time by many critics, "Citizen Kane" won only one Oscar. For decades Welles thought that he lost the award, but it resurfaced in 1994. After a legal battle, it was awarded to his daughter, Beatrice. In 2007, she tried to sell the Oscar at an auction, but it failed to get the minimum amount.

"Orson Welles was not only a magician of the cinema but also a performing magician himself," said Copperfield, who has history with Welles. The filmmaker hosted Copperfield's first TV special and Copperfield already owns many props from "Citizen Kane."

I still say his best trick was having Elle MacPherson magically appear on his arm everywhere he went.

f*ck:

Citizen Kane (dreary over-rated film)

Orson Welles (fat pompous d*ckhead)

David Coppafeel (sh*tty 'magician' better known for annoying litle old ladies back in the 80s with his televised ass-punching preempting of Murder, She Wrote)

WP chode choaker posters (who think they'll be anything more than average fags by posting me to my own little list)

"Who gives a sh*t?"

No one, apparently, but they're willing to sell it to Copperfield.

I mean(t) 'choke', not 'choak.' I've been reading Zodiac murder letters far too long. Clews. Christmass. Eh.

I don't give a f*ck how rich people find ways to burn and waste their own f*cking money. He could stick almost 1M$ in his own anus for what I care.

Would you care if he stuck a little more than 1 million in his ass? What about two million? At what point would you start caring? Three? Ten? Would he have to shove the entire gold reserve into his now overly impacted rectum before you gave a sh*t?

I tell ya, i's a selfish world when we all stop caring what people do with their asses and various expensive objects.

Uh... someone should update this article. Apparently Copperfield was outbid for it by an unnamed buyer.
