Citizen Kane was the first movie directed by Orson Welles and stands as one of the best movies ever made. Based on the life of media tycoon William Randolph-Hearst, Citizen Kane tells the story of a media Emperor and his life, but what changed movie story was its script, its filming and the whole movie as a piece of narrative art.
To Have and Have Not is a 1944 American romance-war-adventure film directed by Howard Hawks.

Did you know that On with the Show! was the very first all-talking and all-color feature-length movie? Released by Warner Bros., the musical was directed by Alan Crosland. It premiered in New York City back on May 28, 1929, and was promoted as the first 100% natural color picture with an all-singing production. However, it is not the very first motion picture to have sound. It was another Warner Bros. and Alan Crosland musical flick The Jazz Singer. Though it was not the first colored movie, it was the first to not only have a synced recorded musical score but also the first to have a lip-synced singing and speech in some sequences.
Also, in 1929, public demand for motion pictures with sound increased. In line with this, movie attendance ballooned to 110 million, and movie houses rushed to have sound equipment in their facilities. The Academy didn't applaud these auditory elements of a film until 1929 when it began to awarding movies with Best Sound Mixing. The Academy Award for Best Original Score was awarded 5 years later, and the Best Sound Editing after almost three decades in 1963. Unfortunately, only the black and white film prints of On with the Show! were kept by the Library of Congress because the original color print is already lost. Although they're almost a century old already, interested audiences can still search where to watch these movies as the internet has a lot of sites to offer.
