  • Notes:

    An Original 11 X 14 Lobby Card #7 from the 1947 classic film noir “The Lady from Shanghai” directed by Orson Welles starring Orson Welles and Rita Hayworth. The film is based on Sherwood King’s 1938 novel “If I Die Before I Wake” and follows crewman Michael O’Hara (Welles) who gets caught up in a complex murder plot while falling in love with Elsa Bannister (Hayworth).  “The Lady from Shanghai” was the only collaboration of Orson Wells and his second wife Rita Hayworth.  The picture was filmed in the beginning of what would be a long three year divorce between the two.  The film at the time of release was considered a complete failure however critics now consider the mirrors shootout scene at the films end to be one of the “hallmarks” of classic cinematography. Offered here is the best card in the set showing Welles and Hayworth in the famous hall of mirrors.  This is one of two exceptional examples we are pleased to offer for the first time.  The card has deep, rich colors and nice white verso. Two of the faintest nearly imperceptible tears in the white borders (hardly worth mentioning) and light handling wear. A great card. One of the most desirable from the 40’s. Fine.
