Hearts of Age (1934)

Beyond its historical significance as the first film made by Orson Welles, HEARTS OF AGE shows us a young artist having fun while still taking himself seriously, throwing caution to the wind and indulging his artistic impulses with wild abandon, not giving a damn about convention or rules, experimenting, playing, succeeding and failing, and embracing invention and individuality instead of mediocrity and sameness. That's all the reason I need to love this film.
