The Cardinal's long lost old bed - FOUND.
The GREAT MAN's old bed is located in the William Randolph Hearst mansion in California. This is the house satirised in the film 'Citizen Cane' directed by Orson Welles. The old bed graced the voluptuous guest suite and can be seen there to this day. The best view we have found of the bed itself is from an old postcard of the '50s.
