The Lady From Shangai by Sherwood King (Novel) and Orson Welles (Screenplay)

The Lady from Shanghai tells the story of Michael O'Hara , who foils a robbery attempt against a beautiful blonde, Elsa. Elsa and her husband, the famous, handicapped criminal defense attorney Arthur Bannister , are newly arrived in New York City from Shanghai. They are on their way to San Francisco via the Panama Canal. Michael, who is attracted to Elsa, agrees to sign on as an able seaman aboard Bannister's yacht. He meets Bannister's law partner, George Grisby, who is traveling with the married couple. Grisby induces Michael to help Grisby fake his own death for $5,000; Grisby plans to run away with the insurance money that the law partners have taken out on each other. Michael signs a confession in advance, planning to run away with Elsa. When Grisby and one of Bannister's hired men are found dead, Michael is accused of the murders. The film features a surreal climactic shootout in a house of mirrors.
