LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Orson Welles' daughter has moved a step
closer to auctioning her father's "Citizen Kane" Oscar statuette through a
ruling of the U.S. District Court. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and
Sciences, which adamantly opposes the sale of any Oscar, said it will appeal.

Beatrice Welles hopes to sell the Oscar -- granted in 1942 for best
original screenplay -- in order to fund her animal-rescue operations. The
statuette has been appraised at $500,000-$1 million.
