    An Orson Welles and Rita Hayworth Signed Presentation Script from "The Lady From Shanghai." Columbia Pictures, 1947. A hardcover; embossed in green ink with the film's title as well as "Presented by Columbia Pictures Corporation;" title only repeated on spine; screenplay by Orson Welles, not dated, an unspecified draft, 152 pages, with a few revision pages dated "October 1, 3, 7, 1946," signed in black fountain pen ink on the front flyleaf "Orson Welles" and "Rita Hayworth" in an uncharacteristically legible autograph for her. (Please note there is mild wear to the spine and corners and light tanning to the pages.)
    11 1/2" x 9"

    According to the current owner, her uncle received this specially-bound script over 64 years ago and at the time, he was told that it was one of only a few that Welles and Hayworth signed for important individuals who helped finance the film, as he had done.
