Description: The Lady from Shanghai, the 1947 Orson Welles Asian China romantic crime film noir ("'I told you... You know nothing about wickedness.'"; "I didn't want money... she knew that when I went to work for her!"; "Soon everyone will know the Lady from Shanghai - Be sure to meet her!"; "Exciting story of a reckless & notorious woman of the world!"; "Story of a reckless woman!"; "Screenplay and Production by Orson Welles"; about an ordinary seaman who sees a beautiful woman on a yacht and gets a job on it so he can be near her, and he ends up involved in a complicated murder plot) starring Rita Hayworth, Orson Welles, Everett Sloane, Glenn Anders, Ted de Corsia, and Evelyn Ellis. Note that director/star Orson Welles was married to Rita Hayworth, and he co-wrote this screenplay as a way for him to star opposite her! Also note that this movie was originally filmed in 1946, but it was not released in the U.S. at that time. It was finally released in France in December 1947, and at that time, U.S. posters were printed with 1947 NSS numbers, but it did not finally open in the U.S. until 1948!

Note:  this still is a key book still, printed on a deluxe heavyweight paper stock. Many studios spent extra money to have their most special photos, the key book stills, either backed with linen or printed on a heavy paper, both of which enhanced their durability. They had an extra 1" at the left or top, with punch holes, because of how they were stored. Key book stills are far more rare than regular stills, which has increased their popularity among collectors, since only a few keybooks were manufactured per film, and a key book still is guaranteed to be authentic. Someone trimmed away the extra 1" from the top of the still (which is not actually part of the photo but an added border with punch holes for a Keybook). .
