Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Just heard in interesting piece on Radio 5 Live about this and had a look on t'internet for any other news.

    On the radio the lady from the auction house said it is an online auction only and they are expecting a sale price of $600K - $1M for it.

    IMHO - not THE best film ever made. The Oscar is for best screenplay and was awarded to Orson Welles.

    Strangely considering his acting abilities I was surprised to learn this was his only Oscar.

  2. Didn't think you were able to sell Oscars as they remained the property of the Academy who had first dibs on buying them back for $1.
     
  3. And Kane is still overhyped shite....spoiler alert it was the bloody sled (not shed)
     
  4. Best film ever
