    Description

    Lady From Shanghai (1948 Columbia). One Sheet (27" X 41"). One of the best films noir ever made featured director/writer/actor Orson Welles as Michael O'Hara, a down-and-out shoreman hired by a wealthy attorney to captain his yacht. While on a trip, O'Hara falls in love with the attorney's wife, played by Rita Hayworth. The film includes one of the most famous and often-imitated scenes in movies; the hall of mirrors sequence. Welles had his leading lady and real-life wife Hayworth dye her famous auburn tresses into a platinum blonde. When studio head Harry Cohn saw the rushes he fumed and delayed the release for over a year. Harry was wrong. Hayworth was as beautiful as a blonde as she was a red-head! Posters for this title are very sought after and seldom appear on the market. Very Good/Fine on Linen.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
