"Citizen Kane" Down to #2, Phelps Relay to #1

New York--

The American Film Institute, the group who publishes and updates the 100 greatest American films of all-time issued a statement on Saturday stating that Citizen Kane, which has long been on top of the list despite numerous revisions and updates, will move to the number two spot on that list.

The institute said that the video of Michael Phelps' gold medal 2008 4x100 meter relay race will now sit atop the much heralded list. Warner Brothers is said to be in talks to re-format the footage for the big screen, and John Williams has been tapped to pen the score for the film.

The AFI, in an "unrelated" move said that the words "Rosebud" in Citizen Kane, perhaps the most famous of that film and cinematic history, will now be replaced with the words "Phelpsy".
