    Description

    The Lady from Shanghai (Columbia, 1947). Half Sheet (22" X 28").
    Seaman Michael O'Hara (Orson Welles) gets more than he bargained for when he saves the lovely Elsa Bannister (Rita Hayworth) from a mugging. Her husband (Everett Sloane) insists on rewarding the brave young man, but it soon becomes apparent he has darker intentions in mind. Hayworth turns in one of her greatest femme fatale performances, while Welles, who served as director, producer, screenwriter, and star, establishes himself definitively as one of the masters of modern cinema. Two sizzling images of Hayworth on this style B half sheet! There are stains in the bottom left and bottom center, edge wear with small tears and paper tape on the verso, a tiny chip at the bottom right, and smudging in the top right yellow background. Rolled, Fine/Very Fine.
