STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.
Nobody wanted the Oscar badly enough. We told you yesterday about the plan to auction off the only Oscar won by "Citizen Kane," the first movie made by Orson Welles. The Academy Award was expected to get $1 million or more. This morning we have to report that nobody made the minimum bid. Somebody did want a cheaper prize. Welles's personal copy of the "Citizen Kane's" script sold for $100,000 roughly.
It's MORNING EDITION.
