THE LADY FROM SHANGHAI
(Orson Welles, 1948)
Ultra Collector Blu-ray Box + DVD + Book
With The Lady from Shanghai, actor-director Orson Welles produced an irresistible work which is as much film noir as adventure film. Rita Hayworth (Gilda) is splendid as the poisonous femme fatale. Brilliant and dismissive of many of the codes of classic Hollywood cinema, The Lady from Shanghai proves once again the genius of Orson Welles. Sublime new 4K restoration.
