The Lady from Shanghai

A film by Orson Welles
Starring Rita Hayworth, Orson Welles, Everett Sloane, Glenn Anders

Orson Welles takes the classic femme fatale tale to globe-spanning lengths and hallucinatory heights. Hard-luck seaman Michael O’Hara (Welles) tumbles into the net of mysterious Elsa Bannister (Hayworth) only to find himself caught in the murderous conspiracies of her viperous cohorts. One of the most startlingly inventive crime films released by a Hollywood studio in the 1940s.
