    Description

    The Lady from Shanghai (Columbia, 1947). Fine/Very Fine on Paper. Half Sheet (22" X 28") Style B.
    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. Professionally restored, this half sheet once showed some edge and fold wear, slight fold separations, and pinholes. The poster had moderate tears in the borders that extended slightly into the interior, as well as a tear that extended from the bottom border into the first "a" of "Shanghai." There were light creases and mild surface wear. The borders, as well as parts of the yellow and white backgrounds, have been airbrushed. There are a few post-restoration smudges. Fine/Very Fine on Paper.


    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
