Welles on Film

The Lady from Shanghai in 35mm

This September, hot on the heels of our August 31 screening of Citizen Kane, the Roxy is proud to present Welles on Film, four more extraordinary films by the American master Orson Welles, all presented in 35mm. 

Seaman Michael O'Hara, against his better judgement, hires on as a crew member on attorney Arthur Bannister's yacht, sailing to San Francisco. They pick up Grisby, Bannister's law partner, en route. Bannister has a wife, Elsa, who seems to like Michael much better than she likes her husband. After they dock in Sausalito, Michael goes along with Grisby's weird plan to fake his (Grisby's) murder so he can disappear untailed. He wants the $5000 Grisby has offered, so he can run off with Elsa. But Grisby turns up actually murdered, and Michael gets blamed for it. Somebody set him up, but it is not clear who, or how . . .
