The Lady from Shanghai

"I told you... you know nothing about wickedness"

One of the last Orson Welles film noir projects puts Rita Hayworth in the middle of a plan-gone-wrong as Elsa Bannister. In order to collect a large sum of money, one man must fake his own death on a cruise. Ms. Bannister holds all the clues when the plan takes an awful turn, and the client is murdered for real. Quick thinking and a trail of lies are used to cover the murder and collect the thousands of dollars promised in the original insurance fraud scam.
