    Description

    The Lady from Shanghai (Columbia C.E.I.A.D., 1948). Fine/Very Fine on Linen. Italian 2 - Fogli (39.5" X 55.25") Anselmo Ballester Artwork.
    Anselmo Ballester created a masterpiece when he painted the artwork used on this striking poster. Rita Hayworth becomes one of the screen's ultimate femme fatales as she seduces Orson Welles, an Irish sailor, into a bizarre and convoluted murder plot. Welles directed this film as well as casting his wife, screen beauty Hayworth, in the lead role. Hayworth was known for her auburn hair, but for this role, Welles had her dye her hair blonde. To this day, the film is still considered one of the greatest film noirs ever made. This poster has received partial touchup to the folds, pinholes, small tears, and a few chips. Some of the pinholes were torn or enlarged, including some in Hayworth's image. These issues may still be visible, as is mild toning. This poster is extremely scarce and highly desirable.
