The Lady from Shanghai (1948)
March 2019 -- Just Say No(ir)

Friday, March 22, 2019 - 6:00pm

Directed by Orson Welles | Rita Hayworth, Orson Welles

Explaining the plot to this strange, unforgettable film can defy even those who have seen it several times. Suffice it to say it includes a stunning woman, her withered disabled husband, a handsome young Irishman, and a murderous plot that leads to a San Francisco amusement park hall of mirrors and one of the most famous – and imitated – noir film climaxes of all time.
