William Randolph Heart was a powerful newspaper publisher from the 1880s until his passing in 1958. He was also at one time a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, produced movies from the 1910s to the 1930s, and was well-known for his extensive art and exotic animal collection, as well as the portrayal of his life in Citizen Kane. He also had a very long term affair and illegitimate child with Marion Davies (he never divorced his wife, but he lived openly with Davies in California, and also with his family back east)!
