So, without further ado, here's the famous hall of mirror sequence from The Lady of Shanghai. This is the end of the film, so it's spoiler filled ... but it's noir, so if you actually expect it to have a happy ending, I'm sorry. Watching it again, I can't help but be struck with how Rita Hayworth loses her unearthly luminosity in this scene. Her endless beauty shots were forced on Orson Welles, but I think they lend themselves wonderfully to the ending, where she suddenly looks hard and false, and unworthy of all Welles' hero has done for her.
