At first he simply wanted to spend three months in Hollywood and earn enough money to pay his debts and fund his next theatrical season. This legendary contract stipulated that Welles would act in, direct, produce and write two films. The most controversial aspect of the contract was granting Welles complete artistic control of the two films so long as RKO approved both project's stories : Granting final cut privilege was unprecedented for a studio since it placed artistic considerations over financial investment.

The official credit reads, "Screenplay by Herman J. Mankiewicz and Orson Welles". He reviewed all seven drafts and concluded that "the full evidence reveals that Welles's contribution to the Citizen Kane script was not only substantial but definitive.
