In Person: CHRIS WELLES FEDER
Author and Daughter of ORSON WELLES
After saving beautiful Elsa (Rita Hayworth), rogue seaman Michael O'Hara (Orson Welles) is offered to serve on the yacht owned by Elsa's husband, an older man who needs crutches to walk. A fiery passion burns beneath their relationship (in fact, Rita Hayworth and Orson Welles were married at the time) . Enter George Grisby, a man with an offer that lures OHara into a web of lies and murder. The Lady From Shanghai is a film noir classic that draws the viewer in and never lets go. The characters are rich and fascinating, and the tension runs high and hot as the truth is painfully revealed. USA, 1948, 87min.
