The Lady from Shanghai

Written and directed by Orson Welles

USA, 1947

Michael O’Hara (Orson Welles) is an Irish émigré to the United States who earns his income as a sailor. Walking the streets of Manhattan one night, he comes across the carriage of one Elsa Bannister (Rita Hayworth), whose beauty and charm immediately catch his eye. After rescuing her from a group of thieves in Central Park, he offers to drive her home, during which time they grow fond of one another. Lo and behold, the next day, Mr. Bannister (Everett Sloane), a notorious criminal lawyer and her husband, makes an offer: come sail with them through the Americas on their way to San Francisco. O’Hara, clearly attracted to the man’s wife but trepidatious about potential complications, reluctantly accepts the offer.

‘Stridulum’ – a pretty curious specimen in its own right

The Visitor (Stridulum)

Directed by Giulio Paradisi

Written by Luciano Comici

USA/Italy, 1979

This Euro-American science fiction horror clusterfuck was directed by professional body builder Giulio Paradisi (credited as Michael J. Paradise), who made four other films, but is best known for shooting second-unit footage on Federico Fellini’s 8 1/2. It was the brain child of producer Ovidio G. Assonitis – known for his poor quality attempts at cashing in on box office gold by cloning Hollywood’s biggest hits. Assonitis was a hack, with a reputation for producing flagrant knock-offs like the 1977 Jaws rip-off Tentacles (starring John Huston and Shelley Winters) – and Beyond the Door, the most successful of numerous Italian horror films produced in the wake of The Exorcist. In the dawn of ’70s American blockbusters, European production companies emerged stateside, attempting to emulate the success of their American counterparts.
