I watched fortuitously ‘Citizen Kane’ with Orson Welles last night, not long after completing my on-line real-time review of the whole ‘Dark Tower’ series by Stephen King.
I suppose a ‘rosebud’ sled (an iconic image) on snow or ice would have been the diametrical opposite to most of the hard-pushed, friction-jolting contraptions that Susannah had to endure as transportation? (Kane’s Xanadu appears like the Dark Tower itself on the editions of the books I own.)
[And Kane begins Ka…]
And someone else has mentioned, after seeing my theory above, that ‘The Horn of Eld” = Rosebud ?
