William Randolph Hearst, the newspaper magnate on whom Citizen Kane was based, was badly in debt in 1941. He decided to sell some of his antiques. The sale, held, bizarrely, in a New York department store, gave ordinary people a chance to buy unique items at unbeatable prices. With archive footage of the sale, this film traces the where-abouts and owners of some of those fabulous bargains.
