Join us for the second San Francisco Library Film Festival and watch The Lady from Shanghai (1947, 88 mins) at Excelsior Branch!
Michael O’Hara (Orson Welles), an Irish seaman falls for Elsa Bannister (Rita Hayworth), a seductive bombshell married to wealthy lawyer Aurthur Bannister (Everett Sloane), Elsa and Aurthur frame Michael for a murder Elsa committed. Orson Welles wrote, produced, directed, and starred in this film noir thriller with a bizarre twist. Welles’ final scene is a brilliantly photographed shoot-out in a hall of mirrors.
This is a Films & Videos program from SFPL. From feature films to youth-made videos, we’ve got something great to watch.
