    Lady From Shanghai (Columbia, 1948). Half Sheet (22" X 28"). Orson Welles's Irish brogue narrates a dark and moody tale of treachery, deceit and murder in this stylish and unusual film noir. What's a poor seaman to do when his boss pays him to murder him? Welles' true life wife at the time, Rita Haworth, defined the noir femme fatale in the movie and was cast as a blonde for the only time in her career. The posters for this title are highly sought after as this is one of the true classics of the noir genre. Folded-Fine.
