Twittersode 011 – The Lady From Shanghai (1947/8)


Look, I’m not qualified to discuss Orson Welles! I don’t have a degree in . . . Wellesian Film History! I don’t get what’s going on in his head! But, a deal’s a deal. So, here’s “The Lady From Shanghai!”


030 – Jane Eyre!

Orson Welles! John Houseman! Aldous Huxley! Joan Fontaine! Uncredited Elizabeth Taylor! It’s a cavalcade of disparate talents as Ollie and I watch Robert Stevenson’s “Jane Eyre” from 1943! This rounds out our “Funtaine!” trilogy and ends on a bang. What have we learned? Don’t date creepy guys with secrets. Seems like a good lesson, really.
