    Description

    The Lady From Shanghai (Columbia, 1947). One Sheet (27" X 41"). A pleasant cruise to San Francisco kicks off an elaborate web of lies, deception, seduction, intrigue, and murder, in this chilling film noir thriller starring real-life couple Rita Hayworth and Orson Welles. The film's exciting climax in the hall of mirrors is unforgettable. Hayworth and Welles were married at the time this film was made, but their marriage was disintegrating, leading many to speculate that Welles made this film as an attempt to salvage the relationship. If that was his intention, he failed, as the couple divorced shortly after the picture was released. In an interesting bit of Hollywood trivia, it should be noted that the yacht upon which much of the action takes place was the Zaca, a craft belonging to Errol Flynn, who captained the vessel in between takes. This stunning one sheet, with its sizzling portrait of a blonde Hayworth, had pinholes in the corners, fold wear with crossfold separation, all of which have been addressed with professional restoration. Posters from this title are highly sought after and seldom appear on the market, so don't miss your chance to bid on this classic rarity! Very Fine- on Linen.
