Description
In partnership with The Film Foundation, Turner Classic Movies and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment proudly present this DVD/Blu-ray combo pack of The Lady from Shanghai (1947)—the first-ever Blu-ray release of the film, featuring a brand-new 4k digital restoration from the original negative.

Orson Welles (Citizen Kane, 1941) wrote, directed and starred in this treacherous tale of a sailor (Welles) hired to help a beautiful woman (Rita Hayworth) and her disabled lawyer husband (Everett Sloane) sail their private yacht from New York to San Francisco via the Panama Canal. On board, he is bribed to “fake” the murder of the lawyer’s partner (Glenn Anders), only to find himself trapped in a deadly game of cat and mouse. Welles created a scandal, and lots of publicity, by having his wife Hayworth’s trademark red locks cut short and bleached blonde for her role as a femme fatale, but the movie failed to score at the box office upon its release. Over time, critics have lavished praise on Welles’s uncommon vision, which culminates with the most elaborately staged of all film noir finales—the famous shootout in the hall of mirrors.

        There's simply no excuse for the TCM version to exclude including the subtitles that were present on the DVD. The Mill Creek edition DOES include them, so that's the one to buy.

              This is a great, classic movie and it's finally in blu-ray. It might be a little dark in some parts but overall it is a big improvement over the old DVD.

                  I ordered the Blu-Ray and after about two weeks of waiting (apparently the disc was sent on the slow boat from China -- sorry, couldn't resist...), I received THE LEGO MOVIE instead. Now, I'm saddled with the burden of having to return the incorrect disc I was sent (I'm supposed to pay for the padded envelope?) while once again waiting for THE LADY FROM SHANGHAI to arrive. I don't expect to be ordering anything from TCM ever again.

                    Somewhat maligned and overlooked, TLFS is a terrific film noir. Welles is in top form here, The transfer to BluRay is top notch,

                              This is the second TCM blu ray disc release of Lady From Shanghai. The first was fine and this follow up even better. Skipping the technical stuff, the image is deeper and the audio even better. As for Orson Welles, Rita Hayworth, Everett Sloane and Glenn Anders, they are compelling performers. Peter Bogdanovich offers a commentary that is warm, friendly and informed.

                                  I had a very difficult time following Orson Welles' dialogue since he uses a pretty heavy accent. Very disappointed that there are no subtitles.

                                    TCM made a strong effort with their Blu-ray re-release of The Lady From Shanghai and it shows. Although a little dark, the transfer is exceptional, and the extras are solid. Two BIG flaws: (1) The Blu-ray release lacks English subtitles (which were present on the DVD release) and (2) there is no pop-up chapter selection menu. Worth buying, but the lack of subtitles is truly disappointing!

                                          I bought the first version of this disc, and was disappointed. But now I love TCM!!! They listened to their customers, and not only improved the video quality of the originally disc, but also put it in a beautiful blu-ray-sized case. Nice job, TCM!!! Thank you so much for caring enough about this amazing film to do it right!!!!! I cannot recommend this purchase highly enough. Get it in your collection!!!!
