    Description

    The Lady from Shanghai (Columbia, 1947). Folded, Fine/Very Fine. One Sheet (27" X 41"). From the Mike Kaplan Collection.
    One of the top film noir posters of all time, it boasts the stunning Rita Hayworth with a newly styled bob in "Topaz Blonde." The gifted Jean Louis, designer of the famous Gilda black dress, created another dazzling look for Hayworth, shown here in body-hugging satin. This is the only film Hayworth would make with her then-husband, Orson Welles, who brought his signature flair to the production. The film 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. Indications of usage include some fold wear and separation, pinholes, small tears, and a few smudges. Also visible are a couple of minor chips at the crossfolds, as well as bleedthrough in the lower left border from an ink stamp on the verso. Along with its status as one of the greatest examples of noir in its highest form, The Lady from Shanghai also boasts one of the most sought after illustrations in the genre.
