The Lady from Shanghai

Companion Feature to THE EYES OF ORSON WELLES

Double Feature with TOUCH OF EVIL (4:30)

1947 • dir Orson Welles w/Orson Welles, Rita Hayworth, Everett Sloane, Glenn Anders, Ted de Corsia • 86 min • DCP

Welles and Hayworth (in reality, a couple at the tail end of an incendiary marriage) play two people brought together by lust and passion – or was it always cold calculation and manipulation by a femme fatale?

“The climax, a shootout in a funhouse hall of mirrors, is one of the bravura sequences in all film, a triumph of hey-look-at-me form over just-the-facts content.”
– Mark Feeney, Boston Globe

“Time proves this to be insanely ambitious and batty in the best sense.”
– Glenn Heath Jr., Little White Lies

“A magnificent mess of switchbacks and revelations, climaxing with one of cinema’s most outrageously inventive sequences.”
– Tom Huddleston, Time Out
