Truthfully, I didn’t really like The Lady From Shanghai too much. The handling of the film noir genre seemed confused, Rosalie Bannister (Rita Hayworth) was too passive for the plot to make sense, and Michael O’Hara’s (Orson Welles) Irish accent was unconvincing, distracting, and campy. All this aside, it was an interesting film and was visually engaging: I liked the representation of Acapulco and the Shanghai district of San Francisco, and finally the funhouse mirror scene.
Read my thoughts on the final scene of The Lady From Shanghai, and watch the actual video sequence below.
