    Description

    The Lady from Shanghai (Columbia, 1947). Very Fine- on Linen. Three Sheet (41.25" X 79.5").
    Rita Hayworth is sensational in her role as devious Elsa Bannister, embodying the ultimate femme fatale in Orson Welles' film noir classic. As both the star and the director, Welles brought innovative camera work and his signature flair to The Lady from Shanghai, the only film he made with then-wife Hayworth. The picture also possesses some stunning cinematography, now especially famous for its ingenious "Hall of Mirrors" scene, a segment that fuels both the thrilling action on screen and fully reveals the complex web of lies spun throughout Welles' chilling narrative. With such a stunning image of Hayworth on this jaw-dropping three sheet, it's no wonder this is one of the top noir posters of all time. It displays beautifully after professional restoration and no longer shows fold wear and separations, creases, and small tears and chips in the borders and folds. The borders and red background have been mostly airbrushed, and the linen has been trimmed near the top and bottom borders, but this does not intrude into the paper.
