RITA HAYWORTH | THE LADY FROM SHANGHAI (1947) Publicity portrait by Robert Coburn


[Los Angeles: Columbia Pictures, 1947) Vintage original 8 x 10″ (20 x 25 cm.) black-and-white glossy silver gelatin photo. Minor creases at all four corners as well as a pinhole at each corner which have been covered with clear tape on the verso. About fine.

Full-length glamour portrait depicting a provocative and seemingly dangerous femme fatale as characterized by Rita Hayworth. The filmmaking was fraught with problems, as was the film’s reception, partially owing to the public not wanting to see Hayworth wearing short platinum blonde tresses as she does here. Her gown was designed by Jean Louis and she is featured wearing it on much of the publicity art. Photo is ink stamped on the verso Columbia Pictures, Photo by Coburn.
