The Fairfax Joneses re-opened the Everyman in February. At first prewar favourites, including Mädchen in Uniform, and the Paula Wessely films, were shown. When films were imported again from abroad, Everyman audiences were introduced to more recent productïons like Renoir’s The Southerner and Eisenstein’s Ivan the Terrible. But it was Orson Welles’ Citizen Kane which proved the most popular, playing repeatedly in 1946 and beyond.
