The Lady from Shanghai (1947)
Was the Bannister actor (Sloane) really partially paralyzed?
I was impressed with the way the Bannister character walked, with the two canes, especially in the courtroom scenes. Was Sloane paralyzed, or did he take on this walking style just for this movie? I saw nothing in the bio on Sloane to indicate he was paralyzed. I just watched this on TCM...I found it to be a rather typical Wells's movie...even saw some similarities with The Third Man-the lack of clarity as to who was who, and who was guilty. But, overall I found it to be quite good. I even kinda liked Wells's accent, although I agree with others that it did not seem totally accurate. I would recommend this movie, along with the third man.
